Getting Preschoolers Reading Along with the League of Women Voters
Saturday, Oct. 20
The League of Women Voters of Erie County has assembled a reading list for preschoolers with its new program, "League Ladies Literature for Little Ones."
The list includes Who is Susan B. Anthony, by Pam Pollock; One Vote, Two Votes, I Vote, You Vote, by Bonnie Worth; "Where the Sidewalk Ends, by Shel Silverstein; Be Kind" by Pat Zietlow Miller; Americans, by Douglas Wood; I Am Peace – A Book of Mindfulness, by Susan Verde and Peter Reynolds; She Persisted, by Chelsea Clinton; Of Thee I Sing. A Letter to My Daughters, by Barack Obama; Martin's Big Words, by Doreen Rappaport; Happy in Our Skin, by Fran Manushkin; Elena's Serenade, by Campbell Geeslin; Malala's Magic Pencil, by Malala Yousafzai; and We Don't Eat Our Classmates, by Ryan T. Higgins.
Adults will enjoy these books, too. Malala's Magic Pencil made me cry happy tears and We Don't Eat Our Classmates made me laugh out loud.
The first read-aloud program will be at Pressed Bookstore, 1535 W. Eighth St., on Saturday, Oct. 20, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. – Liz Allen
