Book of the Day

Peter H. Reynolds wrote
 an inspiring tale that celebrates the
potential for creativity, even if one
doesn't always recognize that possibility.
It's that book for anyone wishing  
to instill in children
that "imagination" is valuable,
it lies within each boy or girl.

Read Aloud......Yes!


Read out loud to children!
It can create a positive
attitude toward books,
helps the ability to write,
and connects kids to literature.


We say "yes" to good books for kids
and sharing stories with them 
widely, at every opportunity!
