Lethbridge's first One District One Book to read "Wishtree"

March 25, 2019

Thousands of students across Lethbridge will be participating in the first One District One Book initiative with New York Time’s bestseller Katherine Applegate’s “Wishtree”.

Michelle Dimnik, One District One Book committee member, noted that this will be the first time students from grades K-12 will read the same book.

“We’re the first district ever to do it all the way from kindergarten to grade 12,” Dimnik said.

Dimnik said the underlying theme of the book is "caring and sharing and welcoming people who are different than we are to our communities."

“It’s a beautiful story that’s for every age and it has a message for all of us.”
