For the fifth consecutive year, Pennsylvania's One Book, Every Young Child program will lead the way and highlight the importance of early literacy development in preschoolers ages 3 to 6. This year's book is What a Treasure! by Jane and Will Hillenbrand.
To celebrate the Lansdowne Public Library held a special What a Treasure! themed storyhour.
These youngsters are waiting for the stories to begin!
What a Treasure by Jane and Will Hillenbrand
Treasure by Suzanne Bloom
One Dark Night by Lisa Wheeler (only read Wednesday night)
During our Thursday event Miss Margaret translated the books into Polish and Miss Heidi signed the books with us!
We discussed moles and their low vision with a demonstration by Miss Rachee and how she sees without her glasses.
Pirate hates to look for treasure!
Here is Miss Rachee offereing a pirate hat to a young reader.
We mined for chocolate chips using Chewy Chips Ahoy.
We held a Scavenger Hunt in our Family Room. Participants were charged with finding objects from the books (mole, his parents, the animals the found treasures for) as well as other items that could be found while looking for treasures.
Completed boards were exchanged for coupons for local food stores on Wednesday evening or Jelly Beans on Thursday, as the 22nd was Jelly Bean Day.
