Children Learn Through Stories

Talk Story: Sharing stories, sharing culture is a literacy program that reaches out to Asian Pacific American (APA) and American Indian/Alaska Native (AIAN) children and their families. The program celebrates and explores their stories through books, oral traditions, and art to provide an interactive, enriching experience.  Children and their families can connect to rich cultural activities through Talk Storyin their homes, libraries, and communities. We welcome all ethnicities to customize Talk Story as needed for your community family literacy needs.

In light of recent conversations regarding Muslims and the Middle East, Lee & Low put together a booklist of picture books about Muslim or Middle Eastern characters. Reading diverse books opens up new cultures and places to readers, builds empathy for others, and encourages exploring outside of one's comfort zone. Now more than ever we must share these stories.

We loved the graphic novel Secret Coders by Gene Luen Yang. Use this book in a Grade 4-5 or Middle School Book Club, and then teach a basic coding program such as Logos OR create riddles in which kids must use binary code to decode the answers.

We are really excited about the forthcoming book The Wheels on the Tuk Tuk, about a bus bound for a Diwali party. Will we finally have a good storybook for Diwali storytimes?
