Our Independent CD Books Skill Spot is a favorite for listening to reading.
All of our Skill Spots, Skill Tubs, and Centers have books. The kids love to practice reading books - which they read to me during our "Book Club" time so that they can contribute a dollar to our Heifer International Read to Feed program. **Update** In response to our Day of Giving Challenge (click on this link to watch our AWESOME video), our wonderful middle/high school students, spectators at the 2/2/13 basketball game, two local businesses, and an anonymous donor we greatly surpassed our goal of raising $1000 dollars... In one day our little community raised $6426.72!!
