Active Participants in the
Book Circle Project

Embark on a Literary Adventure!

The Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, alongside co-authors Gregg Behr and Ryan Rydzewski, is thrilled to launch the When You Wonder, You’re Learning Book Circle Project, made possible by the generous support of The Patterson Foundation!

The excitement is contagious as book lovers and educationalists like you are already signing up to lead or actively participate in book circles.

Book circles consist of at least (6) individuals coming together for (4) engaging meet-ups between September 12 and January 25. We’re talking about lively discussions, laughter, and Aha! moments galore. And guess what? The Patterson Foundation is going to sprinkle in some extra magic:

  • A copy of When You Wonder, You’re Learning –  Mister Rogers’ Enduring Lessons for Raising Creative, Curious, Caring Kids, for each participant
  • A discussion guide written for adults with prompts for each chapter of the book (Spanish version available upon request)
  • Activities for children and families that coincide with the themes in the discussion guide
  • A certificate of completion for each participant

Each successful local book circle will have an option to choose ONE of the following:

  1. $400 in support dollars to assist with childcare, snacks, or facilitation and a certificate of completion for each participant
  2. $500 Pay-it-Forward award to The Giving Partner nonprofit of their choice and a certificate of completion for each participant
  3. Thank you, we don’t require any financial support beyond the books, discussion guides, and certificates of completion

Mark your calendars for September 13 and 14 and meet co-author Ryan Rydzewski at 1 of 6 captivating events!
