20 books for children
Promoting early literacy through providing children with books during Kindergarten through Second grade is critical to their future development. Our Cultural Education 4 Kids program ensures that the books these young children receive are about important issues that teach values and tolerance. We also introduce these young children to a service learning project with this program giving them the tools they need to become empowered and well educated adults who have a love for reading.
This gift will provide an entire classroom with books that will educate them on cultural diversity issues. These books are distributed directly to the children and they are theirs to keep. Along with that book comes an teaching lesson about the book and a discussion about cultural issues the book address. Books that we have offered in the past include Tar Beach by Faith Ringgold and Mud Soup by Judith Head.
