One School, One Book is designed to create a shared reading experience with an elementary school community.
Every student and staff member will read a chapter book, The World According to Humphrey by Betty Birney, over the course of one month. Activities at school coordinate, promote and enrich the shared reading experience.
The program is modeled after All Town Reads which has been done across the country. One Book, One School promotes family literacy.
At Redding Elementary School there will be a kick off gathering where students will watch a video segment sent by the author. Students will also receive a calendar with reading assignments and discussion questions.
The ILA committee is also planning to Skype with Ms. Birney in April.
