Reading Is For Everyone...A New Site Celebrating #OwnVoices From Capstone!

Today, our friends at Capstone, introduced an amazing new website with these four important words across the top, Reading Is For Everyone, celebrating and advocating for #ownvoices, a hashtag used to recommend books about diverse characters written by authors from that same diverse group. 
As stated on the site, Capstone is passionate about inclusivity, equity and accessibility for the benefit of all kids because we believe "ReadingIsForEveryone.  
They have invited us to join them in celebrating and advocating for the importance of reading by bringing us this wonderful site filled with important, helpful and special...
...downloadables, booklists,
videos and book trailers,
tips and articles and more.
Under the Own Voices tab, you will find several diverse authors and illustrators for picture books to middle grade novels from Capstone.  I can't wait to share these with my students! 
And last, but not least, check out the D.E.A.R. Hour Capstone will be hosting for World Read Aloud Day on February 1, 2019.  Read all of the details on the site. 

You will find the Reading Is For Everyone website here
