March into Reading Program

March 20 – 21, 2015

Now in its 12th year, March into Reading has become a hallmark event for Aquidneck Island students, their families and their teachers!

 March into Reading promotes reading as a community value. March into Reading supplies schools with quality children’s books and engages students in ACE preschools, elementary and middle schools in common reading. In addition, teachers and librarians in classrooms and school libraries throughout Aquidneck Island guide students in author and book studies of March into Reading’s featured authors and illustrators. (scroll down to see the featured authors and illustrators that have been featured in past years)

The program culminates in a two-day, island-wide celebration of children’s books. Authors and illustrators visit schools on a Friday to read books, demonstrate how books are illustrated and talk with children about their love of reading and writing.

The following day, the festivities continue at Salve Regina with author and illustrator presentations, book sales and signings, special exhibits, and the very popular discovery rooms designed by Salve Regina’s education majors. The festival nurtures families’ engagement in their children’s learning by giving children the opportunity to introduce their parents to the authors and books they have studied in school.
