Week 1: Storybook Adventure
June 5 - 9
Christina Gilliam

Once upon a time....There were children who fell in love with reading as they ventured off into the faraway worlds of storybooks. They had an amazing time in the land of make believe, bringing a new book to life through art, centers, and activities each day. Most importantly, they lived happily ever after!
