Guess what I planned at the preschool where I teach? Shout out to local bookstore Words and the directors of SJCC ELC for helping put together an author event to celebrate Read Across America! Shout out to my author-friends who will be reading to the kids. This week will be picture-book-review-week as I cover Ariel Bernstein’s I HAVE A BALLOON, Chana Stiefel’s BRAVO, AVOCADO!, Anne Appert’s BLOB, Robin Newman’s DON’T CALL ME FUZZYBUTT! and Rebecca Gardyn Levington’s WHATEVER COMES TOMORROW. Fun!
What is Read Across America?
The program was created by the National Education Association (NEA) in 1997 and is designed to encourage children of all ages to read, and to promote the love of reading among children. The program is celebrated in schools, libraries, and communities across the United States, and is often marked by special events and activities that center around reading and literature. The goal of Read Across America is to promote literacy and a love of reading among children and to encourage them to explore the world of books and reading.Read-A-Thon
