Every year in September every Bozeman Public School First Grade Students, plus the librarians at those schools, receive a book from the Bozeman Schools Foundation. This book is a gift from the Bozeman Schools Foundation’s Link to Literacy Program. Along with the book, student and families will receive information about the important role parents play in the early literacy process and suggestions for reading out loud to their children. This year, all 1st-grade students will receive a hardcover book on September 21st.
This year’s book is ‘Wolf In The Snow’ by Matthew Cordell. This Caldecott Medal winner follows a girl and a wolf pup lost in a snowstorm.. how will they get home? This beautifully illustrated book will spark imaginations and warm hearts. Cordell worked with Yellowstone Biologists to make sure the storyline was plausible. This picture book is a gift from the Bozeman Schools Foundation’s Links to Literacy Program.
On Sunday, September 23rd from 1-4pm, we invite all 1st-grade students and their families to the Bozeman Public Library to participate in Yellowstone Adventure Day which will include a tree identification key and challenge, a Yellowstone rock samples and a build-your-own bird feeder station. The Bozeman Schools Foundation will also have a booth set up to answer questions about this year’s book and author.
We’ve enjoyed bringing this project to the Bozeman Public Schools and hope that you find time to read your new book together! To learn more about the Bozeman Schools Foundation go to BozemanSchoolsFoundation.org. Hope to see you at the Library on September 23rd, 1-4pm. Siblings and friends welcome!
