I love all 34 of my preschoolers! One of the best parts of the day is book time. They get to choose which books they would like to read or have a teacher read to them. Many of my kids come from poverty, single-parent households, and foster care.
I believe literacy is one way we can break the cycle.
It is also a great bonding experience for all of us. We have a few couches, blankets and pillows to make it even more relaxing. I would love to incorporate more social-emotional books into our book area to help my kids who have difficulty expressing their feelings. Please help me with this great cause!
Literacy plays a huge role in children's lives. Please help me help them. Young children many times do not have the language to express their wants and needs. If they have that in books and pictures, it will make more sense to them. Having a chance to read these on their own and during a dedicated book time will give them the confidence and words to do this. These new books will also ignite their interest in books that will follow them throughout their lifetime. Let's get this project going so we can impact our littlest learners, one book at a time.
