School is almost out for the summer but before the last bells rings on the 2016-2017 school year, Miss Soto’s Literacy Legacy has one more book to share! “Miss Soto Literacy Legacy Project” is proud to announce the final book selection for this year, “Sylvie” by Jennifer Sattler. We wanted to do something special for our community. This special addition of “Sylvie” has been printed for every family in Stratford’s public schools, grades K through 6.
Over 3,000 copies will be distributed at each school this week! This project has been a year in the making and we would not have been able to accomplish this without the help of the author and Penguin Random House Publishing.
“Sylvie” the pink flamingo, goes through a journey of self-discovery after learning the reason why she is the color pink. She tries different ways to change herself and the way she looks, but ultimately finds out that it’s simply better to just be yourself. We hope this book will “tickle you pink” as much as it did us and Miss Soto! She not only loved flamingos but kept this book in her classroom where she often read it aloud to her students. It was one of her favorites, so we hope you enjoy this book as much as she did.
“Sylvie” is the ninth book in the legacy project series and the fifth book selection for this year. Since 2015, “Miss Soto Literacy Legacy Project” has been collaborating with the Stratford Board of Education to distribute over 1,800 books to over 250 classrooms and teachers across the Stratford K-6 school district.
We also invite you to join us on June 29, 2017 at 4:00pm in the Lovell Room of the Stratford Public Library located at 2203 Main Street for a meet and greet with the author/illustrator of “Sylvie”, Ms. Jennifer Sattler. She will be reading the book out loud and will be hosting a creative art activity as well. We hope you will join us for this very special event!
