It has become evident that our community strongly believes in the importance of literacy in our children's lives. We have great libraries, wonderful schools and adults who love opportunities to read with children. Cazenovia Children's House welcomed many guest readers in each of the classes during March.
March Into Reading Month began with a visit from the Cat in the Hat's and Things 1 and 2. Other guest readers included parents and neighbors that work for the CCS Transportation Department, Burton Street, Cazenovia College, Dielectric Laboratories, the Cazenovia Police Department and individuals who are retired fire fighters and educators.
In addition, families have been showing their love for reading together. A paper in the shape of a Dr. Seuss hat is written on with the title and author of each book the family reads at home. One of the walls in the gross motor room at CCH is full of many, many colored hats with favorite books.
"We are so appreciative of the members of our community who have volunteered to read to the children," said CCH Associate Director, Daithi Borges. "From toddlers to children in the school age program, guest readers have demonstrated that a love of reading is valued throughout life."
