What Are You Doing?

Written by Elisa Amado; Illustrated by Manual Monroy

This is a delightful story that will help all young children understand the importance of reading.  The main character is a kindergartener starting school for hte first time.  He spends the morning before his first day of school seeing many community members reading for various purposes.  Then, his kindergarten teacher reads to him on the first day of school.  He comes home and offers to read to his little sister by reading the pictures.

This is a book that I can see being read in every kindergarten and first grade classroom across the country on the first day of school and then numerous times during the year.  It not only helps children to see why people read, but it also helps children to see that there is more than one way to read.  you can read the pictures as well as the words.
