ECC Students Bring Storybook Characters to Life

by Jessica Leite '22

Last week, Heritage Hall’s Early Childhood Center (ECC) students brought their favorite stories and characters to life during Storybook Day, an exciting celebration of books, characters, and reading.

The fun began at carpool, with students exiting their vehicles dressed as princesses, dragons, superheroes, and other beloved characters. Following an introduction of the many characters present, each class enjoyed a story featuring one of their teachers’ favorite characters. Then, with parents looking on, students participated in an adorable storybook parade before joining their guests for a freeze dance game and pictures.

Students returned to their respective classrooms for storybook games, crafts, and snacks following the outdoor festivities.

Reflecting on the memorable event, ECC Director Barbara Leite commented, “Storybook Day is an engaging way for young students to celebrate their love of reading and the magic of characters in books. Through activities such as Storybook Day, we hope to instill in students a passion for books that they will carry throughout their educational journey and beyond.”
