Reading Without Walls #readingwithoutwalls

April is READING WITHOUT WALLS month. Hosted by Macmillan's First Second Books, Reading Without Walls, is "a month-long, nation-wide program to promote diversity in reading, inspired by National Ambassador for Young People's Literature Gene Luen Yang and his ambassadorial platform. Thousands of schools, libraries, bookstores, and comics stores are joining in to help celebrate Reading Without Walls." - quoted from First Second Books

The challenge is for readers to: 
  • Read a book about a character who doesn't look or live like you.
  • Read a book in a format you don't typically read -- graphic novels, poetry, audiobooks, plays.
  • Read a book about a new subject you don't know much about. 

Join in the reading fun! You can find more about Reading Without Walls here: http://read.macmillan.com/mcpg/reading-without-walls/

Will you take the Reading Without Walls challenge? 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
