The World According to Humphrey- by, Betty G. Birney

Every student will receive a copy of the book in order to participate in the program this year. The West Leyden PTA is providing the books to families and staff.

This will take place with our other program, PARP (Pick A Reading Partner). This year's theme is "Tails and Tales" which focuses on stories about animals that can be class pets.

Each week your child reads, he or she will recieve a prize for participation. There will also be weekly discussion questions, and when students participate they will get a participation prize and be entered in a drawing to win a hamster stuffed animal. There will be a lot of incentives for families to read along this month!
