Pennsylvania One Book, Every Young Child is a collaborative project using the vehicle of “One Book, One State” program to highlight the importance of early literacy development. The goal of the PA One Book, Every Young Child Program is to increase awareness of the importance of reading and engaging children in stories among adults with preschoolers in their lives.
The 2017 PA One Book is “Daniel Finds a Poem,” written and illustrated by Micha Archer. Daniel wants to participate in the Poetry in the Park event, but first asks his animal friends for help answer the question, “What is poetry?” After a week of discovery, he is able to share a magical poem.
The Northeast Regional Key would like to extend a special thank you to all of the Guest Readers who went out in April to read this year’s PA One Book, “Daniel Finds a Poem” by Micha Archer to the early learning programs in the Northeast Region. We would also like to thank all of the Host Sites for opening your doors and allowing a guests into your program to read to the children. You all help to make this year’s PA One Book Guest Reading such a success.
