Inspiring Students to Wonder More Since 1983
SCHOOL VISITS: We bring authors and illustrators into schools to develop literary engagement and provide resources. Details here.
READING RESOURCES: We share news about children’s books through regular communications. Join our mailing list!
MISSION: Wondermore nurtures curiosity, enriches curriculum, and inspires a love of good books by connecting Boston-area students to creators of children’s literature who reflect our diverse and vibrant communities.
Our Authors-in-Schools program brings acclaimed authors and illustrators directly into urban classrooms across Boston for curriculum-aligned presentations and interactive discussions.
By working closely with teachers and librarians to connect the work of the author or illustrator to classroom studies, Wondermore-sponsored presentations enhance school curriculum.
At the same time, we emphasize diversity in the selection of our authors so students can see themselves reflected in the pages of the books Wondermore donates and are inspired to wonder more.
Our VISION: Wondermore envisions a world in which all children have the opportunity to see themselves in the books they read and are inspired to become lifelong learners.
