Letter W Book Ideas
Are you hard at work checking off badges for the Read the Alphabet Challenge? If you haven’t heard about our Read the Alphabet Challenge yet, let me tell you about it. We’re challenging kids in kindergarten through 5th grade to see how many books they can read with titles that start with different letters of the alphabet. Our challenge runs until November 30, so you still have time to sign up and join the fun! Of course kids who participate will earn prizes, coupons, and tickets for drawings.
