“In an effort to reach out to the preschool families in the neighborhood, our school created a Little Bookworms Club. We printed colorful bookmarks with the dates and books for each meeting and distributed them through local public libraries and early childhood groups. Parents and preschoolers are invited to the school library for a special book, snack, and craft on the last Thursday of each month. Several of our older students are bookworm ‘helpers’—which the preschoolers love!”
