Build a Book Project results in 3 community-written books

Reading Partners Twin Cities created the Build a Book Project in early 2020. Our goal was to collaborate with community members and produce books that kids would love to read. Here are three of those community-written children’s books from the Build a Book Project.

Jake is Hungry

Jake is always hungry, so when he has a craving for some yummy food, his mind immediately goes to his grandma’s rice recipe. He travels back in a memory to his grandma’s kitchen and helps her make her famous dish. When he comes back to his own kitchen, he brings his newfound knowledge and helps his dad cook some rice.

Genesis and the Magic Mirror

When Genesis gets sucked into a magic mirror, her world turns upside down. Inside her mirror world, she reinvents herself as “Gen,” and Gen has the coolest bike, style, and everything else. But when her old self wants her to come back to the world she grew up in, she must think about how much of her reality is perception. And how much of her perception she can change to make her old world as fun and happy as her new one.

The Adventures of Albert S. Cheddar

 Al, Scruffy, and MooMoo love to eat cheese. But, they love to dance even more. They decide to have a dance party with all their friends and come up with a bunch of fun and silly cheese-themed dances. From the Macarena and Cheese to the finale that is The Cheese Dance, Al and his friends have a blast.
