Friday Fun – One Book, One Community
Yesterday my daughter brought home Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, by Grace Lin. Every single home in our district that will have a child in elementary school next fall received this book (thanks to the generosity of the Luso Federal Credit Union and the Joseph Dias Jr. Estate AI Trust Foundation). Families in the district are asked to read the book together throughout the summer.
To inspire reading and sharing the book, several activities related to the book have been scheduled throughout the year:
- A summer long coloring contest
- A kite festival
- A visit from the author, Grace Lin
- A production of the play based on the book by our local acting group
and my personal favorite:
- A scavenger hunt throughout the town that can done at your leisure during the summer
I can’t wait to get started! Now if only school would finally end….
