"This book is tremendous...it's such a super combination of history, culture, & inspiration & hope. You’re a superhero Ekuwah! I’m so glad you’ve stepped out & wrote this incredible book! This is a super book for any classroom or home!"
ACTIVITY AND DISCUSSION GUIDE
Educator Chris Woods and I co-created a list of ideas to get your planning started! Also, I included sample story map templates for writers of all ages to plan their unique ABC story.
You are welcome to make changes, print copies, or republish the guide and story maps for non-commercial use as long as credit is visibly given to Ekuwah Mends Moses in the footer. For commercial use, please contact me for further details.
I’d love to hear how you imitate and innovate these ideas! If you’re able, please share with me using the hashtag #MyNameIsAnAddress or tag me on social media. I may add your examples to the extension gallery!
“The power is not in the book itself, but rather in the readers who create meaning or co-construct meaning through dialogue, develop empathy, and are inspired as change agents."

"No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally - and often far more - worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond."
