The Reading With Your Kids Certified Great Read designation has been developed to acknowledge outstanding books and products that kids and parents will love to experience together.
Mr. Shipman’s Kindergarten Chronicles: DECEMBER CELEBRATIONS is a sweet little book that will captivate a child’s imagination right from the start and hold their interest till the very end. As we were reading the book, all the memories of life in kindergarten including the classrooms, corridors, playground and the affection of favorite teachers came alive. The sweet hardcover of the book shows Mr. Shipman dressed as Santa and holding his kindergarten students as they are enjoying the December holidays to the fullest, from gifts and decorations to field trips and Christmas tree. The common theme that emerges is one of affection, tradition, diversity and the value of celebrating different cultures together. The story describes the exciting memories of Christmas celebrations of a young child named Banicia and her Kindergarten classmates during Mr. Shipman’s kindergarten class.
As this book talks about Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa, it introduces children to the beautiful uniqueness of many cultures, it can be used as a great opportunity by parents and teachers to show children how people around the world celebrate the same holiday season in different ways. Filled with lavish illustrations, magnificent detail, and enchanting holiday scenes on every page. Mr. Shipman’s book perfectly reflects a diversity of characters and traditions that teaches kids to see themselves as part of a global world.
Dr. Terance Shipman is a 23 year veteran teacher. He spent much of his teaching career working with elementary aged students. In fact, he spent his first 11 years teaching kindergarten! He is proud to say that he built strong relationships over those years and has an incredible network of his students and their parents and co-workers that he has remained in contact with over these years. Dr. Shipman calls this ever developing network “Team Shipman”. Through Team Shipman, Dr. Shipman offers continual encouragement, leadership, and mentor-ship to his students, their families, and his professional peers.
Dr. Shipman currently teaches middle school and extends membership to Team Shipman to his current students and their families. Mr. Shipman’s Kindergarten Chronicles are the stories of teaching kindergarten that make Dr. Shipman smile the most when he thinks about his years teaching kindergarten. Each book in the series celebrates the male teacher, in particular the black male teacher. Acknowledging the under-representation of black men in education, Mr. Shipman presents a positive and strong black male image that children need. Through his first series of books, Dr. Shipman’s Kindergarten Chronicles, Dr. Shipman hopes to make kindergarten an exciting and anticipated adventure for students, parents, and teachers, while casting an even wider net for Team Shipman.
