A typical day in a Pre-K classroom involves numerous opportunities to connect with books. Students "read" and look at books both independently and with friends multiple times a day. In addition, they listen to books be read by the teacher throughout the day, both as a whole class and in small groups. Young children love being engaged with books, and even students who are unable to read independently love to use illustrations to help them tell stories. But how can we extend this learning into the home? There is nothing teachers in our building want more than for our students to succeed! Having access to books, as well as hearing them read aloud, both at school and home, has been proven essential for a child to be successful in their academic career. Unfortunately, many children in our school come from low-income families, and therefore are more likely to live in "book deserts." In addition to lack of resources to purchase books, many families lack access to reliable transportation to travel to public libraries.
