Stronger Me, Stronger We – THIS BOOK IS COOL!

THIS BOOK IS COOL!

THIS BOOK IS COOL!, a series of 100 webisodes designed to encourage a love of reading, premiered on June 1, 2020. More than 5,300 hundred children and their families across the Suncoast region learned about new books, increased their vocabularies, and created works of art aligned to the book’s themes. Due to its success, and because the community wanted more, SCGLR is offering five 1-hour, guided conversations to teach you how to help children process new information from books and the world around them.

  • Track One: For the Classroom
    Aligned to State of Florida standards, educators and students will use three books from THIS BOOK IS COOL! to further their English Language Arts skills. As a gift from The Patterson Foundation, each participating child will receive books to add to their home libraries.
  • Track Two: Family Book Circles
    During five 1-hour guided conversations, families will explore three themes highlighted in books from THIS BOOK IS COOL! while participating in fun and interactive activities designed to nurture a love of reading and learning. As a gift from The Patterson Foundation, each participating child will receive books to add to their home libraries.
