Family Literacy Night

Research confirms that one of the most important things parents can do to help their child build reading and writing skills is to read aloud every day to their children.  Often that can mean reading your child's favorite books again and again!  

One of our favorite books to share with children is If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff and Felicia Bond.  This wonderful picture book is a very funny "circular tale " of warped logic and will be our featured book for Family Literacy Night, Friday, April 28, 2017  from 5:00 pm -6:00 pm

To encourage families to read together, be sure to enter our raffle to win a prize at Literacy Night.  Simply write down the name of the book you read aloud at home with your child on the raffle ticket, and place it into the raffle box in the hallway.
