community bookshops in Wayland, MA!

I know I have neglected this poor blog, but something so lovely happened this last month that I know I needed to share!  Remember the Community Bookshop project I did at Rain Dragon's preschool? The little-free-library-but-with-a diversity-angle bookshelves I helped to create with her school's Diversity Committee?  That project that was SO important to me because I feel like we need to be able to talk about race with our kids? Well, after I posted and shared the idea online, I was invited to come to Wayland, MA where I helped to open:



THREE more Community Bookstops!

Aren't they beautiful? Apparently, Wayland's awesome  reading specialist Debra Pellerin heard the project and helped spearhead community bookstops for her district (she's the one in the blue and white striped dress in the photos, everyone give her a round of applause)!

Isn't that great? For me, it just warms my heart so much to see the idea of the community bookstop spreading. I hope it inspires other places and schools! It seems like a small thing, but I truly believe that sharing these books are one of the seeds to creating a more welcoming, connected and strong community.

Yay for the community of Wayland!
