Comments from Participants

The setup was really good! And it was nice to have refreshments.

The variety of books dealing with racial & gender equality.

Lots of book w/ planting seeds in the theme.

Reading by the Numbers (and its relation to the arts!)

I liked that there plenty of choices to look at and they weren't all children's books.

The different tables w/different topics that all relate to each other. Also the different reading levels.

 Getting to see the different books that you could teach and use in classrooms. I love reading and discovering new books especially to help children learn & see the world.
