Read On Wisconsin: September 2013

It’s time to begin another year of Read On Wisconsin!  The Read On Wisconsin literacy program, begun by former first lady Jessica Doyle in 2004,  is now administered by the Cooperative Children’s Book Center (CCBC) of the School of Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Read On Wisconsin highlights monthly titles for children and teens across five different age-level groups: Babies, Toddlers and Preschooles; Primary (K-2); Intermediate (Grades 3-5); Middle School; and High School.  Discussion questions are provided for each month’s books, and has compiled links to resources in their database about the titles. There is no formal Read On Wisconsin programming. Instead we encourage you to incorporate Read On Wisconsin titles into your storytimes, use them as classroom read-alouds or as part of literature circles. Or consider starting Read On Wisconsin discussion group. More information is available at
