2017 Summer Reading

Build a Better World

When you read about others and their lives you develop empathy, or the ability to understand their feelings. This is an important quality for people to have to become kinder and  more compassionate.  By learning from nonfiction books and articles, you can truly gain the skills to help our world in the future.  Reading can spark your interest in science, history or any other topic.   Reading also makes you a more interesting person!
