The fourth grade class on our Harlem campus wrote nonfiction books about topics they knew a lot about, and had a publishing party with their families to celebrate their work. The topics ranged from video games, to cooking, to how to prank people.
Books and literature are a big part of what makes the Storefront special. Indeed, when the Storefront first opened, it was as a library. It was a priority from the beginning to introduce the world beyond our Harlem neighborhood to the children in the community through books.
