Recently, students in Betty Watson’s kindergarten class at Wellington Elementary School received copies of the book 101 Reasons to Read With Your Child. The book was written by Brenda Star, a local businesswoman and grandmother. The author donated copies for each student to give to their families. The Palm Beach County Literacy Coalition recently stated that the book reminds parents of the many benefits that sharing books with children can bring. They went on to say the book also encourages parents to find creative ways to engage young children in vital, daily reading experiences that will transform their lives. Principal Dr. Maria Vaughan received a signed copy. The class was excited to bring their books home to their families and will continue reading every day. Shown here is Watson’s kindergarten class with their books.
