Spreading the Seeds

Here's how it works! Choose from the following actions:

Read the story in a classroom or to a group of children. Post a pic on social media with the hashtags #shiftbookbox and #spreadtheseeds and then report your action(s) below!

Host a public reading of one of our included books at a park or library. Post a pic on social media with the hashtags #shiftbookbox and #spreadtheseeds and then report your action(s) below!

SHIFT your box into a sign or work of art that reflects your family's values as they relate to any SHIFT Book Box theme. Follow us on twitter here or on Facebook here for suggested messaging. Photograph your work on display in your community. Post a pic on social media with the hashtags #shiftbookbox and #spreadtheseeds and then report your action(s) below!


On the first of the month, all reported actions from the preceding month will be tallied by zip code. The most active community will have the opportunity to select a local, social justice oriented organization to receive 5% of that month's net profit.

Share with other seed starters on our Facebook page! How did your actions go? How are your family conversations going? How are you navigating the content with your children?
