Road to the Reading Final Four Nominations are Now Being Accepted

Nominations are open until January 23rd. We’ll take all nominations and select 32 fantastic picture books that we will read, explore, share and talk about. Families will receive the list of all 32 books in February as well as video recordings of community members reading each week! In the final days before Spring Break we'll vote, narrowing the 32 books down to 1 Bear Tavern 2019 Picture Book Champion! Our hope is that our ROAD TO THE READING FINAL FOUR will encourage family reading fun, spark nostalgia for great classics and introduce students (and parents!) to innovative, new titles. Please share your favorite children book(s) in our nomination form. The nomination form can be found in your email from Mr. Turnbull and The Focus.
