Chicopee Children to Explore “In a Small, Small Pond”

There will be lots of happy young children this holiday in Chicopee, Massachusetts.

Reader To Reader is proud to announce that every pre-school and kindergarten student in the Chicopee school district will be receiving their own hardcover copy of the Caldecott Honor book In a Small, Small Pond.

A thousand copies of the books will be given out to the children in time for the holidays.

The delightful book by author Denise Fleming, gives children “a frog's eye view of the animals and insects that live in a freshwater pond. Life in the pond is observed throughout the seasons and is depicted via collage illustrations.”

Reader To Reader would like to thank publisher Henry Holt and Co. for making this donation possible. The donation is also made possible due to the support of the Irene E. & George A. Davis Foundation, FirstBook, Comcast, Chicopee Savings Bank, and the Xeric Foundation.
