Ensure a brighter and richer future for your child  by encouraging him or her to read each day.
Reading to and with your child will promote growth in his or her reading ability as well as provide an enjoyable experience that will increase your child's motivation to read. A significant growth in reading ability typically occurs in the primary grades. Please spend time reading to and with your child daily. Encourage your child to read sometimes “all by him or herself,” and at other times to read a book with you. All children enjoy listening to stories, so please make this activity a consistent part of your daily plan at home for reading success. The list is created by Pinellas County Schools.

The Pee Wee Scouts and their parents are off to Atlanta, Georgia, for the first-ever Pee Wee Jubilee.

It means an airplane ride for everyone.  (Sonny Betz really gets scared!) It means camping out, bonfires, sports, and crafts.  It means a special new song and making friends from far away.  It means Pee Wee Scouts everywhere!

But, for Molly Duff, it means much more.  The Jubilee is far from home.  Molly feels all alone. Sometimes it's not easy to be a perfect Pee Wee.
