Weekly Recaps
DFW BubbleLife Sunday Edition

This week, we’ve partaken in Banned Book Week by exploring the elusive power of words. We’ve seen how literature threatens readers; how language inspires a lifelong love for reading; how one book celebrates a season; and how literacy fosters hope for a better life. Literature affects everyone – not just teachers and students. Read these stories to learn how language impacts you and your family.

Thank you to all who have participated in Best of BubbleLife! Don’t forget to nominate the best youth sports coach in the survey! Check your newsletter or local site to vote.
