Cultivating Curiosity

Ovations Offstage: Cultivating Curiosity

Ovations Offstages’ Cultivating Curiosity places books in the hands of Maine students and provides young learners with a unique opportunity to make connections between literacy and performance. The program pairs reading opportunities with selected School-Time Performances, by providing each child who attends the performance a free book born from its title or themes to add to their home library.

Ovations partners with I’m Your Neighbor Books to curate diverse books and provide resources for young people, families and educators to engage deeply in literature and story.  I’m Your Neighbor Books strives to build a stronger American, one where immigrants are welcomed and where first, second, and third general Americans truly belong. This work is done by facilitating deep engagement with the children’s books that represent our New Arrival and New American communities.
