Strauss Storytellers

At the Strauss ECE and Kindergarten, we love books!

Reading aloud is recognized as an important activity leading to language development.  As such, we have started our new enrichment program called the Strauss Storytellers.  Every Friday, the children in our 2, 3, and Pre-K classrooms will join together in the Katz Family Library and Youth Center to hear two or three books read aloud.  You will be invited to choose one of your child’s favorite books that can be read by you, a grandparent, aunt, uncle or even an older sibling.

A book by rick walton

A young boy meets a hungry alligator. Throw in mistaken identity and a pair of stinky socks, and you have all the fun and surprise of the fabulous new picture book Suddenly Alligator. In his usual engaging way, author Rick Walton tells an entertaining story while also teaching language arts concepts to children. A great addition to Walton's line of language arts picture books, Suddenly Alligator is a rollicking little tale. With the superb illustrations and creative vision of Jim Bradshaw, this is a book you won't want to miss!
