February 25 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Does your organization provide books to children in your community? Are you considering a book giving strategy to support children’s summer learning? Our new guide – Summer Counts: A Guide to Support Summer Learning Through Book Giving can help.
Over the winter, NCECF worked with Book Harvest of Durham to create this new guide. With all the skills and know-how of Book Harvest, the guide focuses on nine research-supported best practices in book giving. Book Harvest’s signature initiative, Books on Break, highlights these best practices in action. You’ll also learn about what supports parent want to help their children keep learning over the summer. And there’s plenty of resources to help you improve, scale-up or start a book giving program.
Join Book Harvest and NCECF for a webinar on Monday, February 25th for the release of the guide. Rachel Stine, Program Director for Book Harvest and Catriona Moore, English Language Resource teacher at Forest View Elementary School in Durham will be the featured presenters for the webinar. Forest View Elementary has participated in Books on Break since its inception in 2012.
