This month, we are studying all of the People We Know!

Social connections are a key component of a child’s development. Learning familiar faces, names, titles, and jobs can enhance their understanding of the world around them!

Each of our age groups are diving into this study in a way that perfectly fits their developmental stage.

We love using our group reading times as a catalyst for thinking about the topic we’re diving into. Here some of our favorite choices, divided up by reading level/age, for you to check out, too!
