On the List!

We would like to use these occasional posts to provide more insight about books on our Amazon Wish List for the Lost Boyz Library Project. Hopefully, this will convey our vision for this library project and inspire other educators as well!

 

Dr Seuss

 

 

Most people can remember Dr. Seuss books from their own childhood. And they continue to be great for all ages!  Dr. Seuss books provide an entertaining foundation to language development for beginning readers and remain favorites as children grow-up. These are books that will keep a young child’s interest, invoking rhymes and wordplay to entertain.
