Every class room, and every home, needs a library. Even if it's small and even if the books change because you borrow them. But kids need books (so do grownups, but that's another post) and they need to learn the parts of the books, how they work, and how to use and love them.
It really is a non-negotiable. It's a significant part of learning, and no, the smart phones, and the computers haven't replaced that need. And finding a favorite book to hear again and again and again and again, until you have it memorized and can "read it". That's an amazing part of learning too.
Do you remember one of your first favorite books?
I do. I had many books I enjoyed, but one in particular was "The Monster At The End Of This Book" with Grover, who tries desperately to get you to STOP turning the pages! I loved it and I still do.
In fact I made sure that my kids had the book, and my grands too. And you know that every time I read that book to them, magic happened. Because when you love a book, you just read it differently. And that, those moments, that passes a spark on to the next person. It may not be their very favorite, but that spark, it takes hold in them, and helps them to find their favorites too.
Books also make excellent gifts year round. If you are interested in supporting my school, and buying books for your kids, here is a win-win. When you shop this link https://orders.scholastic.com/Y77BN

Safe and happy travels!
We know the key to success starts way before school, and Pre-K to the end of Third Grade is the significant foundation for learning success.
