*READING WITHOUT WALLS!
We are asking our young people to explore the world through books and challenges readers to do one of the following:
1) Read a book about a CHARACTER that doesn't look like you or live like you.
2) Read a book about a TOPIC you don't know much about.
3) Read a book in a FORMAT that you don't normally read for fun.
Teens - buttons for the first 10 participants.
Kids - coloring activities and stickers
