Third-Graders Bring Books to Life

Third-graders brought their favorite books to life on Halloween morning during the Lower School’s annual Book Character performance. Students spoke—in character—about their adventures in their favorite books and urged audience members to learn more by reading the books themselves. Some of this year’s reads included Who was Neil Armstrong? By Roberta Edwards, Amelia Bedelia by Herman Parish, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, Thank you, Mr. Falker by Patricia Polacco, Pinkalicious by Elizabeth Kann and Hilo the Boy Who Crashed to Earth by Judd Winick.
 
This annual FWCD tradition allows students to immerse themselves in reading and take part in a solo performance in front of an audience (for many, it’s their first). The opportunity gives students a chance to explore themselves and their characters, as well as delve deeply into some of the most beloved books for young readers.
