As a parent, it can be challenging or even uncomfortable to find the words to help children understand what is happening in our world today.
Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover Family Reading Project is a FUN and FREE reading initiative that challenges children Pre-K through 5th grade and their families to use books to begin meaningful conversations about inclusion, equity and social justice. Families will be encouraged to participate in thought-provoking discussions that stretch their thinking as it relates to diversity.
At the end of the challenge, each child will be asked to write their own inclusion story book (a blank book will be provided). Books will then be submitted to OCER and we will feature one page of each book on a yard sign for an upcoming Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover Family Walk. Two winning books will also be put on display at the Orange Public Library as a Book Walk.
