Kid's Favorites Fridays!

Grades 1 - 5
Ms. Michelle and Ms. Carlene will host a series of programs held on the third Friday of the month. The series will focus on some of the most beloved children's books old and new! We will introduce the children to other books by the same author and some "read-a-likes." Parents may have read some of these books when they were young and now may want to share that magic with their child!
