Please enjoy this loving book about a father and son. In a sweetly appealing tale about overcoming your fears, newcomer Gaia Cornwall captures a moment between a patient and encouraging father and a determined little boy you can't help but root for.
This week’s story is Henry Climbs a Mountain. It is inspired by “civil disobedience” in which Henry David Thoreau describes a night spent in jail because he refused to pay taxes in a state that had slaves. Read through the lesson plan and see what supplies are already available. The lesson plan has some low-key activities but it can also serve as a springboard on which to start a conversation about the protests going on today. The book has been scanned and read-aloud so your child(ren) can enjoy the pictures right on your screen. Don’t feel you have to do all the activities—have fun!
