"Dover Reads" Kick-Off Celebration

"Dover Reads" is a citywide reading project, sponsored by the Dover School District Community Involvement Committee, which encourages everyone to read the same book to promote a sense of community and the joy of reading. This year, Dover will be reading Tuttle’s Red Barn: the story of America’s oldest family farm written by Richard Michelson and illustrated by Caldecott Award winner, Mary Azarian. (Yes, this is the story of Dover's very own Tuttle's Red Barn!)

All are welcome to join us for the sixth annual "Dover Reads" kick-off celebration on Thursday, February 14th in the Dover City Hall Auditorium @ 4:00pm. Special activities and events, such as the annual essay contest, the "Math Counts" contest, a vacation week craft at the "Make-it, Take-it" craft table in the library's Children's Room, and the final celebration and awards ceremony, will be announced.

    Great book, wonderful illustrations,and the author has a talent for making the text tell the story in a lively way. After reading, a field trip to Tuttles is a must.

    I laud the person who suggested this book for a Dover Reads choice. We have so much history right here and this book helps us appreciate it.
