Engaging Families for Student Success

TTP’s Staff Favorite Childhood Books

December 20, 2016

Our 2016 programming is coming to a close, with many successes for both Turning the Page in Chicago and DC! As we look forward to the new year, Turning the Page staff reflected on the childhood books which inspired our love of reading and commitment to family engagement.

Happy Holidays from Turning the Page!
