One Book One Community Read-Aloud

Hello Readers!

This is the page where you will find the video links for the One Book One Community Read Aloud! You don’t need a copy of the book because we’ve arranged for special people to read it to you!


The Scituate Public Schools and the Scituate Town Library are pleased to partner to bring you a One Book One Community Read-Aloud starting on June 1!

Each weekday you find will new video links for chapters posted here. The chapter video links will be available until August 30th, so if you have missed a few days you can always catch up!  You could even read watch multiple chapters being read once a week if you prefer!

Our book is Wishtree by Katherine Applegate. It's a beautiful children's chapter book that will resonate with people of all ages.

 

Familiar faces, including educators, librarians and community helpers, will take turns reading chapters of Wishtree. We will post chapters each weekday for you to enjoy listening to. 


We will post the first chapters on this page on June 1st. You'll be able to hear a few chapters a day until July 3rd. Links will be live until August 30th, so you can enjoy listening and viewing at your own pace.

This is a fun opportunity to relax and listen to a wonderful book. We hope that families, friends, and neighbors will all tune in to listen to the book and then spend some time talking to one another about it--virtually or by adhering to social distancing guidelines! Each video link will have discussion questions in the “show notes” below the video. You can use these discussions with your friends, family, neighbors… anyone you like!

Mrs. Gregory and Ms. Lattinville (a.k.a. "Ms. Ann") have created a virtual spot called The Wishtree Gathering Place. You can get ideas there about how to have fun with this book, leave messages and post pictures.
