COMMUNITY ACTION PROGRAM FOR CLASSROOMS
Students cast votes to choose the characters, setting, and storyline of a children's book as it's created.
We Publish A Book
Students go behind-the-scenes with videos, classroom-ready activities, and interactive discussions with the author.
Together, We Help Kids
Students organize a book launch event and use the funds to do something meaningful for their community!
This concept, born as educationally-based, social-emotional support for children and families who lost homes in the 2020 California Creek Fire, has quickly evolved into a global literacy & kindness movement.
What Educators are saying...
“As a teacher, I appreciate Susie’s enthusiasm and student engagement. She had the students hooked from the beginning and EVERYONE participated in voting! That rarely happens on Zoom, and I’m so glad to be a part of this.”
-Kindergarten Teacher, Irvine, CA
"Kids don’t get opportunities to make many decisions right now. This gives children the chance to be in charge of something, to feel heard, and be a part of something that helps other kids. That’s powerful.”
-Principal, Fresno, CA
"This could be a game changer to develop emerging-readers into students who love books."
-Superintendent, Fremont Unified, CA
“I loved the results shown as bar graphs! After we submitted our votes, it automatically showed us that visual, so I turned that into a small math lesson with reading bar graphs!”
-First Grade Teacher, Clovis, CA
"After our class activity with Miss Susie, I asked my class about their favorites part. Hands down, they said, “Voting!"
-2nd Grade Teacher, Illinois
“We are ALL just thrilled to be a part of this! The kids want to be a part of something bigger than the walls of home and classroom... and I think all kids do! They're already asking when we get to do another one!"
-3rd Grade Teacher, Fresno, CA
Students across the country are asking to be involved in our next book!
