Another new resource is under development...Pennsylvania Pairs (PA Pairs)! The PA Pairs resource will include a list of high quality, readily available fiction paired with related nonfiction for children, ages four to eight. Each title will have discussion questions (talking about the book) & activities (extending the book) for parent and child to explore together. Stickers will be created to be placed inside the books, and a list of titles and activities will be available for downloading. Collection building and parent engagement are the ultimate goals of this addition to the Cruise into Kindergarten initiative.
