Through the One School, One Book program, Brookwood selects one picture book per academic year that all ages can access, creating a school-wide shared literary experience. Every member of our school community, including students, faculty and staff, receives a copy of the book. This year, we selected You Matter by Christian Robinson because it conveys to our students that they are valued for who they are, and because of their differences. You Matter reminds us of the importance of resilience throughout life.
For anyone who isn’t sure if they matter. You do.
In addition to being our One School, One Book selection for the 2020-21 school year, You Matter is a call to action for all of us to create a sense of unity. Christian Robinson, the author of You Matter, made a special appearance at School Meeting. Watch the video below to see his message to students.
