Children’s Book Fair Hosted by Discovery Lane

Discovery Lane is hosting the 3rd annual Children’s Book Fair, March 16th as we celebrate Literacy Month. The event’s mission is to increase access to diverse books to build children’s home and community libraries. Each year they highlight the importance of literacy and how it empowers academic success. Children in marginalized communities often do not have access to quality literacy with diverse representation and the need for children to see themselves in is critical to their self-esteem. To pull off such an amazing event, Discovery Lane partners with independent specialty booksellers and authors to offer families a gamut of books that recognize various diasporas. Our mission for the event is to increase access to diverse books to build children’s home and community libraries. They promote an inclusive environment meeting the needs of children and families with varying backgrounds and experience.

About Discovery Lane Children are viewed as an active constructor of knowledge. Rather than being a target of instruction students are encouraged to be an active apprentice. Educators are actively mutually participating in the learning experience. Students will embark on a scholastic journey that is collaborative. Children are provided real-life tools and materials to build their inquisition. Teachers will instruct students, keeping in mind their preferred learning style. While we are certainly influenced by Reggio Emilia we identify the importance of Multiple Intelligences supported by the research of Howard Gardner. The approach to learning reflects theoretical kinship.
