EXPLORE READING GROUP OFFERINGS BY LEVEL

When selecting books for bookworm sessions, I look for "windows and mirrors" in children's literature. I make an effort to choose books that feature strong, positive, diverse characters. 

"As much as kids need books to be mirrors, kids also need books to be windows. Kids who always see themselves in books need to be able to see things from other viewpoints. How can we expect kids to get along with others in this world, to empathize, and to share, if they never see outside of themselves." -Grace Lin
