Finding Hope, Strength, and Resilience in Children’s Books
We’ve put up a new display outside the Lower and Middle School Libraries. Posted above the display are Gandhi’s words, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” Also Woody Guthrie’s lyrics, “As I went walking, I saw a sign there, and on the sign it said, ‘No trespassing.’ But on the other side it didn’t say nothing; that side was made for you and me.”
