Community

The goal of the Bobby's Books Program is to make certain that these tools can be shared with each aspect of our community.  This includes our schools, churches, libraries and various community based organizations.  By reinforcing the lessons associated with the books and the program, you can know that your child is getting the same tools and how to use those tools in every aspect of their life.  Listed below are just a few ways that the Bobby's Books Program has been incorporated into the community to help each child succeed.

Schools
The schools can have the greatest impact on reinforcing the lessons you teach at home with the program.  By establishing a parent resource library with the school counselor, which includes at least the Top 20 books and the Bobby's Books Lesson Plan Bundle Binder and Read Aloud Guide, you will have given the school the ability to be the front line when a crisis happens. Proactive education can be the greatest tool available to the counselor to head off any potential problem. Having the educational seminar available to the school community is another way.  There are many more aspects to the school outreach, such as author visits, Project Linus workshops, etc. 

To learn more, contact Jennifer Taylor at jen@bobbysbooks.org, Project Manager, to learn how to bring the Bobby's Books program to your school.

Libraries
Contact your local library to see if they use the Bobby's Books resources in their summer reading program or story book hours.

The 20 books specifically chosen to be the core selection of Bobby's Books are amazing.  The core selections offer a variety of themes, relationships and family dynamics to choose from in order to serve clients respectfully and within their comfort zone.  Children and their adult caretakers are able to identify needs and process feelings through the characters in the story.  Insight may increase in a nurturing atmosphere that fosters understanding, acceptance and growth.
