Book of The Month Read-Aloud

Our book of the month encourages conversations around the 5 stances (optimism, persistence, flexibility, resilience, empathy) and often connects with the monthly celebration.

Our September Book of the Month is Kick Push by Frank Morrison. Epic has tricks you won’t believe. He’s the kick flipping, big rail king. When his family moves to a new neighborhood, he can’t wait to hit the street with his skateboard. But his old moves don’t feel fresh without a crew to see ’em. Epic thinks about giving up his board to fit in, but an encouraging word from his dad helps him see that the trick to making new friends is to always be yourself. Be you. . . be epic!. We have a list ready for the 2023-2024 school year if you would like to donate books to PS 8 classrooms.
