Celebrate One Book for Every Young Child! April's activities at Schlow Library support Pennsylvania's Early Literacy Initiative featuring Whose Shoes? A Shoe For Every Job by Stephen R. Swinburne! Meet the author at March 22nd's Shoe Party!
This April Centre County children will all be reading the same book, Whose Shoes? A Shoe for Every Job, by Stephen R. Swinburne. Be on the lookout for special events fostering early literacy!
PA's One Book, Every Young Child reading initiative is an award-winning statewide effort that encourages adults to share books and stories with children. Throughout the state, including here in Centre County, young children will have a chance to read, to learn from the book, and to enjoy conversation and the many other activities that spring from reading.
