NISD participates in Texas Reads One Book

Evan, Jessie and their fellow fourth-graders have decided to put the squeeze on an alleged lemonade stand thief in their school, setting the stage for the playground trial of the year in “The Lemonade Crime,” a chapter book by children’s author Jacqueline Davies.

Third-graders around Nacogdoches ISD will participate Feb. 10 in Texas Reads One Book, when students across the state will read “The Lemonade Crime,” part of Davies’ “The Lemonade War Series.”

Texas Reads One Book is part of Read to Them, a Virginia-based non-profit agency that promotes a culture of literacy for every home. Texas Reads One Book is an opportunity for young readers to begin expanding their interest in chapter books like “The Lemonade Crime.”

On Feb. 10, volunteers around Nacogdoches will descend on NISD’s six elementary schools to read the opening chapter of “The Lemonade Crime” to third-graders.

As part of the Texas Reads One Book program, all NISD third-graders will receive a copy of “The Lemonade Crime.” After reading the first chapter together, students will be encouraged to complete the book.

“We hope this is the start of a long relationship for our students and reading for pleasure,” said Marlie Shepperd, a content specialist for the district. “We hope these students and their families can read the book together.”
