One School — One Book is when every family in the school reads the same book at the same time. When a whole school reads one book with their families….. Children from all grade levels listen to the same book being read aloud at home even if they are old enough to read it themselves. When an entire school reads the same book, the buzz and excitement around the book brings an added sense of community among students, parents, teachers, staff, bus drivers, custodians, and cafeteria staff — and beyond. It is fun and inexpensive, but the benefits are monumental.
