Mr. Christopher Robinson

 

REAL MEN READ AT ARROW LIBERATION ACADEMY

The 4th grade students in Dr. Hill’s science class had an opportunity to listen to Mr. Christopher B. Robinson, the parent of Devon Robinson, read as part of Arrow Liberation Academy’s Real Men Read program. Mr. Robinson read We Shall Overcome by Debbie Levy and illustrated by Vanessa Brantley-Newton. The illustrated book, We Shall Overcome, was a winner of The Jane Addams Children’s Book Awards 2014. The award honors books that promote peace and justice. The 4th grade students had a chance to talk to the illustrator, Vanessa on the phone!  The students were excited to hear her voice and she gave them some encouraging words. This was an exciting experience!
