Thank you Scholastic for being the sponsor of this special exhibitor session!

How long has it been since someone read to you; someone who really loves language and delights in the magic of children’s books. Well, then come on in, settle yourself and listen. Lester will bring this busy day to a close with a story.
We are story. Story is how we make sense of our past, navigate the present, and imagine the future. Story has the power to humanize others and help us see our similarity as we learn to celebrate our difference. Lester will explore the power of story in our classrooms.
