One Book

One Book is a statewide initiative that promotes the importance of early literacy development for children ages birth to five years. Each April, Pennsylvania celebrates a book whose story and illustrations encourage children’s imaginations and love of reading to build a community of readers.


In partnership with Trying Together, early childhood educators will receive PQAS credits for their attendance.
