A Message From Adam Welcome

Let’s face it - if you want your students to be readers at school, it’s imperative the adults model that reading with super fun and exciting books! And even better if the Principal is leading the literary charge. I can tell you from first hand experience that a Principal who reads to their classes, builds a culture of reading that spreads to every child in such amazing ways that lasts a lifetime!

The Principal Collection bundle has nine books that sets you up for an entire school year while reading one book each month as you read and foster conversations around these wonderful stories that are guaranteed to engage and hook your students as you read. I’ve personally read each of these books hundreds of times to my students over the years and consider each of them an integral part of any Principals book collection!
