One School, One Book

Every student, grades pre-K-5, receives a copy of the novel The World According to Humphrey by Betty G. Birney to take home.  Every night parents are encouraged to listen to their children read the assigned number of pages or read to them.  Follow-up at school throughout the month generates enthusiasm for reading, and a book talk mid-way through the book and a family night featuring art, discussion, and prizes is the culmination of this community-wide reading program.
