In September we welcome rich and beautiful, inspiring and fascinating stories for our pre-readers, for those who are learning to read, and for those who love reading stories to the wee ones in their lives…
S is for September, and
September is for Little Peeps.
What are the LITTLE PEEPS Awards? Here we have stories that help children look into lives and experiences different from their own, stories that spark the imagination, and drive discovery. These stories teach and comfort, entertain and inspire. These are the carefully crafted stories that open the doors of wonder and invite the children of the world to fall in love with reading. Welcome to the LITTLE PEEPS!
