Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.
This week in class, we’re reading "The Land of Story-Books" by Robert Louis Stevenson.
In this poem, Robert Louis Stevenson showcases his whimsical writing of children’s literature. The narrator—a young child—describes his or her immersion in imaginative play, taking the reader along for the journey.
As we read, we will be discussing the theme of Growing Up as it relates to the text. We are trying to answer this big question :
"Why should we value our youth?"
Ways to support your child:
- Ask your child about this poem at home:
- What was "The Land of Story-Books" About
- What did you learn about?
- Watch Hold Onto Your Inner Child, TEDx Talk by Jacqueline Emerson at home with your child.
