NEW CONTENT UPDATES!
Pennsylvania Pairs (PA Pairs) now has content available for download! Collection building and parent engagement are the ultimate goals of this addition to the Cruise into Kindergarten initiative. The first booklist identifying 20 fiction titles matched with nonfiction selections together with sets of labels for the fictional books are now available under the Resources tab - on the Booklists page.

PA Pairs is designed to produce lists 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. This content will be formatted to labels to be placed inside the books. Directions for printing on Avery 3 1/2" x 5" labels are included.
