One School, One Book

Joe Henderson Elementary Presents: One School, One Book!

What? One School, One Book is designed to create a shared reading experience within our school community. We have selected a chapter book that every family and staff member will receive a copy of to read over the course of the next month. Activities have been planned alongside the reading of each chapter to promote and enrich this shared reading experience.

Why? To create a culture of reading in every home! Research shows that reading aloud to and with children will help them become better readers.
