New Haven Reads had the opportunity to speak with Ann Nyberg from WTNH on her NYBERG show about our mission and our need for volunteers! Check it out and please share with someone who would be a great NHR tutor!
This Saturday is Read Across America Day, a nationwide celebration that takes place annually on March 2nd, Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Check out this awesome slideshow featuring the ways we’ve celebrated over the years here at NHR! Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!
February Recess begins on Monday, February 18 and ends on Saturday, February 23. During this time there will be NO tutoring and the Book Bank will have shorter hours. New Haven Reads will resume normal hours on Monday, February 25.
As promised in yesterday’s post, 30 Must-Read Children’s Books for Black History Month, we’re back with a list of recommended titles to read this February! Sorted by genre, this list is meant to be a beginner-friendly starting point to dive into black literature, history, or cultural commentary. Though you won’t find the Obamas or Ta-Nehisi Coates (two excellent but obvious choices) on this list, you’ll find classics and newer titles, and hopefully some authors you’ve never heard of.
February is Black History Month, and in that spirit, we’ve put together a list of some excellent children’s books celebrating African American culture and history. This list doesn’t even cover all of the resources we have at the tutoring sites, much less available in the literary world, so if you want even more recommendations, check out any the articles linked below, or talk to your Site Director! Happy reading!
