|Books and stories are an important part of our curriculum. We read many books for each theme and make them available to the children to enjoy during "Book Time." We learn about, look at and read a variety of books during "Reader's Workshop." We make, read and take home easy-to-read books so we can practice reading at home. We also have over a thousand books in our classroom library for the children to choose from to take home and read as their "Buddy Book" every night.|
