Book Stars encourages PreK students to use their bodies, voices and imaginations to explore classic and soon-to-be classic children's picture books within a thirty-minute visit. Students are introduced to a book and then immersed in its themes and situations.

Students become characters and solve problems through theatrical play as they bring literacy concepts to life, including print motivation, print awareness, letter knowledge and phonological awareness.

“DCPA has some fantastic educational programs for children and teens. My daughter Katie has enjoyed being a part of the DCPA for several years. The teachers do a great job of making the students feel like they are a part of something special, and I am pleased to give back to a program that gives so much.” — Michael Roche
