Surprise Stories

This is one of my favorite passive programs that I have done. It’s simple:
-Wrap up a book.
-Write clues about the topic and content.
-Put it on display.
-Watch them fly off the shelf!

We also add a review sheet for children to fill out that asks them if they would recommend the book to another child and why. Reading these reviews is the best part of my day!
