Read Aloud Day
"A picture book is first a story but it also gives us proximity
to each other, as it is most often delivered by an older person to a
younger person. You must sit close to turn the pages, to see the pictures.
Your fingers point and touch the paper. Shoulders can rub lightly together.
Repeated often, reading a picture book with a child becomes a doorway that
is recognizable as an opening to beautyreliable, surprising, safe,
and adventurous all in the same moment. Just lifting the cover of the book
between you can become the silent signal that the way is opening, and beauty
beckons. This is not a small thing at the end of a complicated century."
Today was Read Aloud Day
at Arbor Heights. We had guest readers come into the classrooms today and
read stories to the students. Please take time to Read Aloud to your child/ren
