This year was the fifth anniversary of the Virginia Children’s Book Festival! On October 19, 2018, Longwood Speech, Hearing, and Learning Services (SHLS) hosted students from neighboring counties to participate in this event. The students started the day by engaging with each other and Longwood undergraduate and graduate students during activities such as cornhole, origami, and reading corners. After some fun, the student attended a session with Tim Tingle to discuss his book How I Became a Ghost. Tim Tingle provided a signed copy of his book for each student. The students then traveled to the Longwood Center for Visual Arts to contribute to a mural. They returned to SHLS to enjoy lunch and participate in the Literacy Fair hosted by Communication Sciences and Disorders undergraduate students. At the end of the day, students had the opportunity to sing and create their own songs with Paul Reister. The Virginia Children’s Book Festival utilized literacy to help students explore their potential and creativity.
