Elon University students in a School of Education "Children’s Literature" course helped kick off the Holiday Book Drive at Barnes & Noble at Alamance Crossing on Nov. 2.

Dani Cardaropoli, Ella Hirten, Waverly Ann Jackson, Kerry Kurkjian and Courtney Sullivan - students in a course taught by Erin Hone -  collaboratively planned two interactive read alouds about the change in seasons. 

Following the read alouds, they led a craft activity where each child decorated four different trees, based on the leaf colors for each season.

More than two dozen children and their families from the community attended the kick off.

The Nov. 2 Holiday Book Drive at Barnes & Noble at Alamance Crossing welcomed two dozen students from the community.

They invite children in the community to join them for their next two story times – Nov. 16 and Nov. 23 at the Barnes & Noble at Alamance Crossing, beginning at 11 a.m.
