Many of our local students will have a new favorite book very soon. The Way to Go and My favorite Book, beautifully illustrated volumes expressive of moral values, are being made available in certain local schools as a gift to 1st grade through 10 year olds, by local business leaders who are concerned about the future of our children.
A copy of the volume goes home with the child to become his or her very own. Printed in these books is a Parent Guide explaining the values covered in the book along with suggested topics for family discussions. With My Favorite Book extra copies of the book are given to the school along with access to an interactive web site www.MyFavoriteBookLand.com incorporating the themes of the volume.
Without the support of local community leaders this program would not be possible.
The schools involved are: Gladbrook E/S (MFB); Gladbrook E/S (WTG); Reinbeck E/S (MFB); Reinbeck E/S (WTG).
The sponsors are: Lon's Plumbing & Heating Co.; Gift of Grace and Pioneer Hi-Bred.
