“Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open.” Laura Bush


Students increase their understanding that it is part of God's plan that people should be able to read, and that one of the ways that God speaks to us is through His written word. Students listen, read, and respond to a variety of books with more complexity and further develop their knowledge on the different parts of various categories of books.
