Your favorite monthly virtual program is back…
Oh yes, it’s Read And Write Night!
Kalamazoo County youth in grades K–5 are invited to join RAWK volunteers and volunteers from the Western Michigan University chapter of the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association to share our monthly picture book title. Working in small groups, we will read aloud and then respond to the story with using engaging and creative prompts that encourage us to discuss, write, and draw! After small group time, we’ll have a chance to share our responses with the whole group.
Hear a perspective that is new to you, enjoy reading together, express your ideas, and find power in the written word.
All Read and Write Nights will take place via Google Meet.
Each participating family will receive a copy of our monthly book prior to the event
This month’s session is open to 16 families
Registration opens on March 13th

Our April title is When We Went Wild
written by Isabella Tree and illustrated by Allira Tee
Nancy and Jake are farmers who raise cows and pigs, and grow crops. They use a lot of big machines to help them, and spray a lot of chemicals to get rid of the weeds and the pests. That’s what all good farmers do, isn’t it? And yet, there is no wildlife living on their farm. The animals look sad. Even the trees look sad! One day, Nancy has an idea… what if they stopped using all the machines, and all the chemicals, and instead they went wild?
