Readers are winners, just like at the Olympics!  And Dunsmore Hilltoppers have a Read-A-Thon to prove it! Dunsmore students will complete reading challenges to "close" their olympic rings and become Gold Medal Readers! Meanwhile, sponsors support their readers by making donations to the Dunsmore Elementary School Foundation (tinyurl.com/Donate-Dunsmore-Olympics). All proceeds support their school library and reading programs! Once Upon aTime Bookstore is proud to partner with Dunsmore to promote reading and encourage their students to GO FOR THE GOLD!
 

Check out the great selection of recommended Olympic-themed and Black History Month books below.  By purchasing any of these titles from your neighborhood bookstore, Once Upon a Time, you will receive 10% off using the code DUNSMORE

Please note that all books must be picked up at the store -- no shipping or delivery is available.

Another picture book favorite! Natsumi is very used to getting told by her family that she does things with too much vigor: she is too loud, or she is doing things too much, or too hard, or too wild… No one seems to see this as a strength, except for her grandfather, who guides her to a hobby that she was born for, where she can be as loud and as wild as she wants. Natsumi is a perfect story about how there is something perfect for each of us, and to stay true to yourself until you find that!
