This year, the Cleveland community will be reading Barbara O'Connor's "How To Steal A Dog" as its Share A Book. All the classroom teachers will be reading the novel for a shared reading experience.
On February 16th, the Cleveland kicked off its annual Share A Book Read Aloud Program. We will be reading Sharon Creech's "Ruby Holler".
Goodreads describes "Ruby Holler": "Trouble twins" Dallas and Florida are orphans who have given up believing there is such a thing as a loving home. Tiller and Sairy are an eccentric older couple who live in the beautiful, mysterious Ruby Holler, but they are restless for one more big adventure. When they invite the twins to join them on their journeys, they first must all stay together in the Holler, and the magic of the place takes over. Two pairs of lives grow closer and are changed forever."
This year, the Cleveland community read Newbery Honor Book "Because of Winn-Dixie" by Kate DiCamillo as part of its Share A Book program. Every classroom teacher, in every grade, read aloud the story. The title was also read by specialists and administrative staff.
In April, the Cleveland School had the opportunity to view the story's film version.
