Mrs. Sullivan believes that children should seek to use their curiosity to learn and grow. Learning is asking the questions about the world around us. Books offer us the portal to the worlds of science, math, history, literature, and the fantasy worlds that spark our imaginations. It is our responsibility to encourage that journey and hone the skills that will lead them further to navigate the world around them.
