The Latest on Teach Preschool!
Tuesday, December 15, 2009
Then one year, a parent gave me a children's book and had their child sign his name inside. I loved it - it was something I could use in the classroom, treasure for my own, and use to remember the child.
From that point on, if a child asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I would say "my favorite thing in the whole wide world are the books that you love to read - that way I can read them to you." My parents did indeed begin to pass the word and I started getting a few new children's books each year for Christmas.
I thought I would share this with you because chances are your parents want to do something special for you. A children's book is wonderful way for your students to participate in the gift.
