    One School – One Book is when every family in the school reads the same book at the same time. When a whole school reads one book with their families….. there is a lot to talk about.

    Children from all grade levels listen to the same book being read aloud at home even if they are old enough to read it themselves. When an entire school reads the same book, the buzz and excitement around the book brings an added sense of community among students, parents, teachers, staff, bus drivers, custodians, and cafeteria staff – and beyond.

    Reading aloud is simple. It is fun and inexpensive, but the benefits are monumental. Reading aloud to your children is the single most important thing you can do to help them succeed.

    Research indicates that reading is one of the most influential factors which parents and teachers can offer children. Studies have shown that reading to children helps them to listen better and longer, to build bigger vocabularies, to understand concepts better, to feel positive about both books and learning – and much more.
