Apple of Our Eye

We loved learning about our very own Anthony! It was so exciting to hear his mom read parts from two of Anthony's favorite nonfiction books 'this week.

Apple of Our Eye 2

We loved learning about our very own Evan Spiegel Due to our snowy winter, we had to reschedule a few of our readers so it was so nice to finally have Evan's mom and sister join us. It was so exciting to hear a story about George Washington and his teeth. It was a silly and very funny story!
