The Early Learning & Reading Network is dedicated to ensuring 100 percent enrollment in TPS preschools, meeting all six developmental skills entering kindergarten, and reading proficiently by the end of third grade.
Books are meant to be enjoyed and read aloud! Gather with the whole family and hear Senator T’wina Nobles read The Day You Begin, by Jacqueline Woodson, a selected title from the Tacoma Public Library’s Tacoma Reads program.
From Penguin Random House, National Book Award winner Jacqueline Woodson and two-time Pura Belpré Illustrator Award winner Rafael López have teamed up to create a poignant, yet heartening book about finding courage to connect, even when you feel scared and alone.
