Books Encourage Positive Collaboration

SHARP students collaborate with artists and writers to research, write and illustrate books. To date, SHARP has published 17 books in the We Love to Learn series, aligned with state-mandated curricula. Each book is a result of a positive collaboration between schools, administrators, teachers, parents, community supporters and our generous donors.

Our books include:

  • A Busy Bee: The Story of Bella the Honey Bee
  • A Great Lakes Adventure: Salmon’s Journey Home
  • All About Wisconsin
  • All Around Milwaukee
  • Aloha Adventure: A Story of Two Friends
  • Bullying: Is Anyone Listening?
  • The Didactic
  • Discover Waukesha 
  • Explore MKE: Your Neighborhood, Our City
  • Friends and Neighbors
  • There Grows the Neighborhood: Agriculture in the City

Our books are available for purchase.

Coming Soon! SHARP’s 2022 We Love to Learn book, Journeys of Home: Migration, Perseverance and Culture, will feature the work of three writers (Lora Hyler, Mysee Herr and Xela Garcia) and one artist (Rozalia Hernandez Singh) sharing their unique stories and perspectives of their cultures and communities.

80 local students ranging 3rd through 6th grade from five schools participated in virtual Young Authors’ Workshops, facilitated by editor Adam Carr and Lora Hyler. Student writings range from short essays, opinions, poems, and drawings and will highlight the lively and rich histories of Wisconsin’s diverse cultures and communities.
