Zion Lutheran School, in conjunction with the St. Charles County Library, wants to recognize excellence in Children’s Literature and encourage reading out loud to children. Research shows that when you read out loud to your child when he/she is little, it is the single most important activity you can do with him/her to ensure future success in school.
Our PDO program and our Preschool classes will be listening to books over the course of the next 6 weeks that have been nominated for the Building Block Award because they are considered excellent read aloud books. Children will then be given the opportunity to vote for their favorite book. The ballots will be taken to the St. Charles County Library by Friday, December, 31, 2010. The 2010 Missouri Building Block Award will be presented to the author and illustrator voted most popular by children under the age of 7.
All voters will be entered into a prize drawing to win a hardback copy of a Building Block nominee. If you have time you might want to check out one of the books at your local public library. Happy Reading!
