The Family Enrichment Network has created an interactive museum based on a beloved children's book.
The Little Read Open House featured works from 26 classes of children all inspired by the book The Voyages of Dr. Doolittle by Hugh Lofting. The kids have been studying the book for the past 6 weeks in collaboration with their teachers, nurses, transportation workers, and parents. The projects incorporated math, social studies, and science along with reading.
Sandele Wenzel the Family Literacy Specialist says this is their third and largest Little Read Open House to date. "Our goal is to actually use a classic story that is a chapter story at this young age to get them engaged in using their imagination and to get involved with the characters on a deeper level so that they are able to create and have meaningful relationships with books."
Little Read held an open house last week for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and their families.
