I am starting to realize that one of my ultimate goals as an elementary school principal is to have books available within 200 feet of any student. Case in point: We just resupplied the shelves in the cafeteria with nonfiction titles from the National Geographic for Kids series. They are strategically placed; the K-2 students eat breakfast and lunch on this end of the room. Reading can commence while they wait for dismissal. I believe this sends a strong message: Readers read when there is time, and it is always a good time to read a good book.
