Special Children’s Books Donated to Lighthouse
Many thanks to Dr. Roxanne Owens (left) of DePaul University for kindly presenting two children’s books to Lee Burklund, principal of The Lighthouse’s Preschool.
The books were “MooHoo” by Margie Palatini and “Grady the Goose” by Denise Brennan Nelson. Recordings of the books were created by students at Notre Dame College Preparatory School and Dr Owens’ Children’s Literature class. MooHoo was donated by Peggy and Patrick Burke (alum of Notre Dame). Grady the Goose was donated by the Illinois Reading Council.
“The students did a spoken recording of the MooHoo book as well as a dramatically enacted version recording so that we can differentiate the presentation for our varied children,” Ms. Burklund noted. “We in the school really appreciate that differentiation!”
She added that she deeply appreciates Dr. Owens’ support and looks forward to future collaboration with her and her students.
