First, we’re having a GREAT time with the One School-One Book program…. Getting “thank you” notes from parents already about how it’s “forcing” some family reading time that they seemed to have lost over the years.

Since last spring, our entire school has excitedly embraced the One School, One Book Program. We will soon begin our spring selection: A Cricket in Times Square -- the third book we've adopted since the spring of 2010!

The One District, One Book program promoted by Read To Them...is a powerful way to systemically address and promote a culture of literacy throughout the entire school system.
My school actually adopted a hamster and even used it as “pet therapy” for many of the behaviorally challenged children in our school.
One School, One Book is a great way to introduce and instill the habit of reading to your elementary school families.
This March introduce your students and their families to... Sophie and the BFG, Louis the Trumpeter Swan, Humphrey the Hamster, Little Bear, and Opal and her dog Winn-Dixie - and the many, many characters in Read to Them's 36 Recommended Books.
