Q1 2023

January // GROW

In January, we are working on growing our hearts, minds, and muscles. Both of our books are about what you can do when faced with an enormous challenge. By reading these stories, you'll learn how to stand back up after falling down (literally and figuratively), and that even children, when driven to achieve something big, can encourage others to fight for what they believe in too. When we focus, all of us are capable of growing.

BOOKS

  • 8 & UNDER // After the Fall by Dan Santat
  • 8 & OLDER // The Last Panther by Todd Mitchell

February // COMMEMORATE

This February, we commemorate Black History in the United States. We do this by honoring, remembering, and teaching about our civil rights. We will read books about the Tuskegee Airmen, the first black aviators in the United States military and about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King gave his "I Have a Dream" speech 60 years ago, but the message is still important today.

BOOKS

  • 8 & UNDER // I Have a Dream by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
