Hey, children’s book lovers!

November is upon us, and it’s the perfect time to embark on an exciting reading adventure with your young bookworms! To celebrate Picture Book Month, Native American Heritage Month, Election Day, World Kindness Day, and the joy of gathering with family, we’ve created 10 engaging mini-goals that promise a month of exploration and bonding.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the goals we have in store for you:

Bookish Ballots:  Choose an age-appropriate book about elections, leadership, or democracy. Have a family discussion about the importance of voting and why it matters. (Election Day: November 7th)

World Kindness & Family:  Select a book that emphasizes kindness and empathy. After reading, encourage your child to perform a random act of kindness for a family member and share the heartwarming story with us. (World Kindness Day: November 13th)

Native American Legends: Explore a book that delves into Native American culture, legends, or history. Share what you’ve learned and try your hand at a Native American-inspired craft together.

Picture Book Paradise: Select a beautifully illustrated picture book to read with your child. After reading, draw your favorite scene from the book and share it with us. 📸 (November is Picture Book Month)

Let’s make November a month filled with captivating stories, cultural exploration, civic engagement, kindness, and cherished family moments through the power of reading! 📚
