One School One Book
This year, ESM will be reading The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo. Books were distributed Monday February 18th to each family along with a reading schedule. Each weeknight, we hope your family will spend a little time with a very small mouse with obscenely large ears. The main plot follows the adventures of a mouse named Despereaux Tilling, as he sets out on his quest to rescue a beautiful human princess from the rats. The novel is divided into four "books" and ends with a coda. Each "book" tells the story from a different character's or group of characters' perspective, and finally all of them combined. We hope you enjoy spending time with Despereaux and friends over the next month! Parent letter and reading schedule are in the documents section below. Happy reading!
