Library Time At Our Learning Centers

In the last year, along with teaching the children and investing in their dreams, U&I has been busy setting up libraries at many of our centers.

Our Library Program has sparked an insatiable appetite for books - and the eager young minds we reach can't get enough. One of our littlest students, 4-year-old Shreyas, is not quite reading yet. But he still enjoys his picture books. And he loves re-telling the story he "read" to his teacher. His favorite book "The Moon and the Cap" is about a little boy just like him. It opens his view to a world of make-believe where anything is possible.

Having access to fiction books is something these kids don't take for granted. They absolutely love their reading time. Our tutors also use books as a springboard for further learning. We spend 15 minutes at the end of every class on "book time"- when we discuss the kids' favorite books, play "what's next?" (where we ask the children to come up with conclusions to stories), write letters to authors or ask them to draw what they heard or what they felt. Our libraries are categorized into five reading levels and each child gets to borrow a book for a week. 

Like the Dr. Suess quote goes: The more that you read, the more things that you'll know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.

With this lifelong gift of loving books, we know that our children will go places.
