Thank You Joe
Thanks to a generous donation from The Law Offices of Joe Bornstein, Maine libraries can win one of 50 copies of the acclaimed picture book Together We Grow. 50 Maine libraries have already won copies at Reading Round-up!
The donation and the books are given in memory of Joe Bornstein whose commitment to literacy and equality is continued by his family. The Law Offices of Joe Bornstein has been supporters of I’m Your Neighbor Books since 2013, including funding one of Maine’s touring Welcoming Libraries.
“Through his Jewish faith, Joe exemplified tzedakah – or charitable giving – to heart.” —Portland Press Herald
A perfect picture book for the Tails & Tales summer reading theme, this Welcoming Edition bears Welcoming Library’s signature discussion questions about welcoming and belonging (affixed to the back endpapers). The front endpapers include a bookplate about the mission of the Welcoming Library and a message honoring Joe Bornstein.
Curious City and I’m Your Neighbor Books created a read-aloud video for online events, a barn paper craft, SEL discussion questions, and community posters that deliver empowering messages. You can find those all at the bottom of this page.
