About this Campaign
To help encourage reading at home and read aloud time with children and their families, this program will provide a bag of age-appropriate board books to be sent home each week with each preschool student at McPhee. The bags will be kept by families for one week and then returned and exchanged for a new bag of books, making it a convenient way to always have new books at home.
The benefits of reading aloud to children have been well documented, and include helping associate positive feelings with reading, increasing vocabulary, and building early literacy skills. Through this program, we hope to help facilitate and support reading at home as well as encourage students and families to bond over a shared love of reading!
Money will be used to purchase new board books for preschool as well as sturdy bags that can be used to transport books between students' homes and school.
