Bedtime Stories

Maya and I attended the third annual Bedtime Stories at her school last night.

Reading partners read books, alternating page-by-page, in English and another language. At Maya's school, 87 of the 567 students speak one of twelve languages other than English as their primary language. The top non-English languages at her school are Spanish, Vietnamese, and Arabic, so those were the language choices for the three books read.

Kids wear their pajamas and enjoy cookies while listening to the stories. We had a great time, and I'm glad this is an annual event at her school now.
