September is Hunger Action Month, and orange is the color for hunger awareness. Getting children involved in Hunger Action Month gives them a great learning experience as well as a character-building activity.
I often found children’s books helpful in talking about difficult topics when my now-adult children were little. (See “Discussing Difficult Topics with Kids: What’s Worked for Me” at Living Montessori Now.) Following are some creative ideas kid bloggers have used with children’s books to help raise hunger awareness with children along with literature-based activities for Hunger Action Month.
