AdVANCEment Learning, a curriculum publisher, and Foundations 4 AdVANCEment, an Early Learning Academy in Steger, IL will be sponsoring and leading the 2nd annual “The Journey of a Book Starts with a Word” Reading Showcase at Governors State University. This event is open any child in the community in preschool through first grade and offers a variety of reading competitions.
