I only went to a half year of kindergarten (and I used to worry about that, that people would find out). All I remember from that was finger painting (I liked it) and not going back one day after recess and trying to walk home. Maybe I just liked the sand. I very faintly remember being left out - confused. I can picture the intersection. I knew to go south (I say from here).
My mother told me stories, about a lion taking care of kittens. I don't know if that was before or after or in between when she read me books. I'm not sure there were many books either, as she made up stories and sang. I remember an oilcloth book on the simple side. I've fair visual memory, don't think I had a lot of stuff, can picture the room in Ohio with my playpin in the middle. Some blocks. A doll named Sally, but that was later, a ragetty ann doll first. That one had a name too.
