Read Across AmericaOn Wednesday, March 2, 2011, the ECS Library joined in the Read Across America effort by celebrating the wonder and magic of Dr. Seuss.

Students at the ECS were read to by their wonderful teachers and the ECS Librarian from the works of Dr. Seuss. The ECS recognizes the importance of reading by reading to our students every day. We are blessed at our school to have the most amazing, caring, and talented teachers that read to our students every day because they know how important reading aloud to young children is!

Won’t you join the ECS and those across America that are celebrating reading the gifts that reading brings into the live sof children by reading to your child today! Click here to pledge your support of this program!

In case you too are an avid Dr. Seuss fan and would like to engage your young child in a fun Dr. Seuss activtiy, click here for the Reading Rockets activity for Green Eggs and Ham.

New Book of the Day

No T.Rex in the Library  by Toni Buzzeo and illustrated by Sachiko Yoshikawa is a great romp through a child’s imagination! This great story is accompanied by colorful, bright pictures that will make this book a hit with young children!

I have a special area in the ECS Library for books about dinosaurs because preschool kids love dinosaurs! Especially a T.Rex! So, on that premise alone this book will be a hit. You should know though that on Tuesday morning at the library, Tess is a little out of control and her behavior gets her sent to time out. While tilting back in her chair, Tess knocks some books over and a T.Rex emerges from the pages.

The T.Rex then proceeds to tromp through the library, charge through the Middle Ages, cannonball into the ocean, and escape to the Wild West. All the while, Tess is reminding the out of control T.Rex to be careful of the books! Tess then sends the out of control dinosaur to time out and presses him back into the book.

You and your young child will enjoy this story together. I’m sure we all remember our moments of day dreaming when we were in trouble ;-)
