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 December 6th

our January title is Song in the City
written by Daniel Bernstrom and illustrated by Jenin Mohammed
Emmalene, a young blind girl, loves the sounds of her city—but Grandma Jean does not. She doesn’t consider it music. And she just doesn’t get it. But when Emmalene encourages her to take a closer listen, Grandma Jean hears something beautiful.
Song in the City is a rhythmic and lightly humorous tale that bridges the gap between generations of music and family while centering love, understanding, and joy
