Saturday was wonderful. I got kids to read in Spanish to me, read stories from Africa and discovered a new story based in India. We made some puppets and talked about how literacy encompasses more than reading a book. We played lots of games too…you can watch it here. http://www.scpr.org/events/2013/07/20/kidreads-live/
