Tri-Town Community Reads – Be the Good

Embrace the Superpower of Optimism!
Boxford * Middleton * Topsfield

The Tri-Town Community Read program will run from September 2016 through June 2017. Schools, libraries, and community organizations will be partnering to provide books and programming to tri-town residents. Schools will provide books to children grades 7-12. For grades 3-6, teachers will read aloud from the book during class time. Younger grades will focus on cultivating the “10 superpowers of optimism” found in the book through other planned classroom activities. The superpowers include: Openness, Creativity, Gratitude, Compassion, Authenticity, Love, Fun, Humor, Simplicity, and Courage. This September, the towns of Boxford, Middleton, and Topsfield are collaborating on the first “Tri-Town Community Read” program that will explore the themes of positivity and optimism by reading Life is Good: The Book by the Jacobs brothers, founders of Life is Good®
