Yale students join New Haven Reads for story time
Just before the Thanksgiving recess, students in the undergraduate writing seminar “(Re)Defining Family” spent time with local schoolchildren in the New Haven Reads kindergarten program. In keeping with their course topic, the Yale College students selected picture books about different aspects of family — from P.D. Eastman’s “Are You My Mother?” to Pat Mora’s “A Birthday Basket for Tia” — to read to the kindergartners. The youngsters and undergraduates then drew pictures of their own families and shared stories and snacks.
