A beautiful story which earned the 1963 
Caldcott Medal, awarded annually to the
artist creating the most distinguished
American picture book for children.  
Keats evokes the excitement and awe
of a little boy awakening to discover
his neighborhood

What We Can Learn from PreK



Preschool provides children
essential opportunities to grow. 

We can see students learn
to listen, manage their emotions, 
and follow directions from adults
other than family members.

A child's success later in life can
hinge on important learning
that happens in preschool.

So why not enable an entire
school to nurture the ability
for all kids to develop grit,
and develop strong work habits?
