Get your students inspired to read this fall during National Literacy Month, happening all of September. This year we’re celebrating diverse literature that sparks children’s imagination, builds empathy, helps them understand and manage their emotions, and broadens their mindset. Part of National Literacy Month is Banned Books Week, happening September 18 – 24. This year’s theme is “Books Unite Us. Censorship Divides Us.” This year has been a challenging year filled with book banning, making National Literacy Month and Banned Books Week arguably more important to shedding light on stories that broaden our horizons.
