Today we announced our One Book, One School title for this year, Just Ask! by Sonia Sotomayor. Just Ask! showcases how everyone has strengths and challenges, and despite our differences we are all connected. Sotomayor encourages kids to “Just Ask!” when they are wondering something. With thanks to our PTA, each classroom received a copy of the book and sat down this afternoon for the book reveal and first reading of the book. Over the next week, students will take part in discussions and activities related to the book. We hope you can join the discussion, by reading the story with your child or children at home and talking about how you as a family can relate to the book.
With permission from Penguin Random House, we are able to provide a slideshow of the book for you to enjoy the story at home. Click here to access the slideshow. It will be easiest to read the story on an tablet or computer.
You could also watch a video of the story being read aloud here.
Students are bringing home a note in backpack mail today with a short family activity that can be done after reading or listening to the book.
We hope you will enjoy the book as a family!
