ABOUT THE BOOK
When her great-great-aunt Rose (Rosie the Riveter) comes for a visit and mentions her one unfinished goal--to fly--Rosie sets to work building a contraption to make her aunt's dream come true. Her contraption doesn't fly but rather hovers for a moment, then crashes.
Rosie deems the invention a failure, but to her surprise, Aunt Rose insists that her contraption was a raging success! "You can only truly fail," she explains, "if you quit." [from Amazon.com]
We hope that by pairing our literacy curriculum with the Core Essential Values program that we can gently reinforce healthy concepts while promoting a love of reading.
We invite you to read along with us!

A common language.
That's the secret sauce to our curriculum.
A common language of a value and it's simple definition. A value is an inward attitude that produces an outward behavior.
Core Essentials combines the forces of a value and its definition and pairs it with a framework of easily-to-implement tools. Using values that schools and parents can all agree on, we rotate 30 value words and definitions over a three year time span. Curriculum components are written each year so that the material for the rotating values are always new and relevant!
