Picture Book & Novel Pairing


“A fourth grade GT class had been reading Long Walk to Water, and the teacher asked me to share something about Sudan. I read My Name is Sangoel. Students had plenty of thoughtful things to say and were quite concerned about the global refugee crisis.

I was able to talk to them about local efforts to welcome Immigrants and refugees, like Capital Area New Mainers Project, and they felt inspired to support this group.” —Welcoming Library School Ambassador
