Stronger Me, Stronger We
THIS BOOK IS COOL!

Stronger Me, Stronger We provides opportunities for personal growth and connection at no cost as a gift from The Patterson Foundation.

SCGLR’s THIS BOOK IS COOL! received the prestigious Bright Spot award from the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading. This program is a great opportunity for parents and caregivers on the Suncoast to help boost their children’s confidence in learning!

Premiering on June 1, 2020, thousands of 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 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 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.
