For March is Reading month, we asked our students to bring a new picture book (hardcover or softcover) appropriate for a preschool age child. The book did not need to be expensive. We encouraged families to shop together and let their student pick out the book. At the party, they inscribed the book with a kind note. The Helping Hands Club, Kind Kids Club, and 5 classroom teachers hosted Milk and Bookies parties with over 200 students being involved in the book-raiser. We raised over 200 books! Books were then be donated to “at risk” youth in our own community, as well as through the Safehouse Center in Ann Arbor.
What better way to celebrate March is Reading month than through the gift of books!?!
