A Not So Terrible, Horrible Day at School

SNH at Chester Arthur school 05 12 2016Pictured here, Linebarger’s Philadelphia Managing Partner Sharon Humble and several of her new best friends – Students at Philadelphia’s Chester A. Arthur Elementary School, who she visited to read the classic, “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” by Judith Vorst.

Sharon was one of 135 readers who visited 135 Philadelphia classrooms to read that very same book. It was part of a joint effort between our client, the School District of Philadelphia, and the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, called the Read to Me Early Literacy Program.

This program helps support early childhood literacy by providing quality classroom book collections to thousands of Philadelphia pre-K and kindergarten students and inspires them to read with their parents, caregivers, or teachers throughout the school year.  Through the program, children enhance their vocabulary, develop higher order thinking skills, learn to become fluent readers, develop a sense of story structure, increase their oral language development, and develop a sense of reading enjoyment.
