Books are a wonderful way to introduce learning to young children. Using character friends and events from books makes learning more meaningful and enjoyable for even very young children. This site is dedicated to creating rich learning activities for young children based on characters and events found in stories. Please feel free to use any or all of my ideas in your classroom (or at home). If you are interseted in purchasing books or music mentioned here, check out Prekcarolyn's Picks
