Kids Reading Across Rhode Island, Rhode Island’s One Book, One Statecommunity read program for kids, is kicking off its 6th year! This program, offered in partnership with the Rhode Island Center for the Book at the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, encourages students across the state in grades 4 through 6 to read the same book, and engage in community discussions and programs. This year’s selection is Flora & Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures by award winning author and National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, Kate DiCamillo.
