Introducing WISH, our book for One School, One Book!

"When the whole school reads a book, there is a lot to talk about."

~Sponsored by the Mt. Vernon Education Foundation~

What is One School, One Book?

One School, One Book is a shared reading program in which all staff and children in all grade levels read or listen to the same book. Strange or daring as that may seem, it actually makes sound educational sense.

Reading professionals recommend reading material out loud that is beyond a child’s own reading level. And we also believe that you can and should continue reading chapter books with your older children, even when they are able to read by themselves. We have selected a title that can be followed and understood and enjoyed by younger students, but that will still captivate and stimulate older children.
