Unforgettable Story

"I couldn't stop reading Where the Red Fern Grows.  

Billy raises money to purchase a puppy
 because his family can't afford
 to help him.  He finally gets his chance
 and purchases a pair of coon dogs,
naming them Old Dan & Little Ann. 

It's so good.....but so sad at the end!  That's
 what having love for a dog can be like.
 I recommend this book for anyone."

The Treasure Chest

Every child can awaken creative talents.
Sometimes it just takes a
trip to the library, that one book, 
and an imagination that takes flight.

It's "phonemic awareness" we're aiming for!
