Literacy still remains a leading concern throughout the nation. By reading aloud and in small groups, youth gain confidence in their reading and oral communication skills.
Each reader will receive a book. We will read:
Si Se Puede/ Yes We Can by Diana Cohn
Hip Hop Speaks to Children by Nikki Giovanni.
Si Se Puede is based on a janitor strike in Los Angeles. The book is bilingual and multicultural. It teaches youth about labor rights and unions.
Hip Hop Speaks to children is an upbeat poetry book. It comes with a companion Cd with an array of hip hop artists and celebrities reciting the poetry. Each participant would receive a copy of each book. Each illustrated book has a unique aesthetic and illustration.
