One of the primary reasons we started this group was to find ways to build empathy in our children. Volunteering is only one of the ways in which we are tackling this.
This fall, we are partnering with BookPeople to launch a book club for kids ages 8-12! The books we select will tackle issues that our children face every day--from struggles in school, to bullying, to learning to love and accept themselves and others as they are. We will meet one Saturday a month at 12:30 in the kids' section at Bookpeople. Hope to see you there!
Our first selection is Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt and we'll meet to discuss it on Saturday, 9/23 at 12:30!
If you have any books on your shelf that you're ready to pass on to the next reader, bring them along! We'll be collecting new and gently used books for BookSpring.
See you at Book Club!
