Two Schools, One Book!

Quest and Village Elementary Schools joined forces for this year’s One School One Book program and revealed this year’s book during simultaneous evening events. This year’s selection is Winnie-the-Pooh, by A.A. Milne, who wrote the book in 1926 for his son, Christopher Robin about Pooh and his friends – Piglet, Owl, Tigger, and the ever doleful Eeyore. 

The One School, One Book program is designed to create a shared reading experience within a single elementary school community – this year two school communities. A chapter book is chosen, then every family in the school receives a copy, and every family reads that book at home over the course of a single month. 

This is the ninth year Village Elementary School and the seventh year Quest has participated in One School, One Book. "Night at the Village" and “Family Literacy Night” at Quest gave families an opportunity to pick up free copies of the book and have fun doing a variety of activities.

Studies have shown that reading to children helps them to listen better and longer, build bigger vocabularies, understand concepts better, feel positive about both books and learning – and more.
