The Books For Kids foundation created the library at Graham Windham Day Care Center and it was such a wonderful idea. The setting is really nice. One teacher said that "children should read everyday in order to develop their language skills. It's like taking a mini trip to the library." Another teacher said "there are a lot of books we can use for our classroom thematic units. The children can read the books and then put them back on the shelves according to the corresponding color coded dot system." Another teacher said "The room is bright and colorful. The listening area is nice. The children can interact with the puppets. The puppets can be used to help tell a story." The library is a wonderful gift, it's inviting and we will cherish it.Thank You Books for Kids!
