Join us each month to explore children's books addressing a variety of important topics and discuss ways to incorporate them into your classroom. We will address conversations that might arise, share resources, and discuss extension activities. Participants should be prepared to actively participate in facilitated discussions, ask questions, and share their experiences, and are encouraged to bring their own favorite book titles relevant to the evening's topic.
