Local children’s author Marc Boston, and local musician Tevin White joined us last week for entertaining and inspired readings of The Girl Who Carried Too Much Stuff and What About Me? Mr. White provided musical accompaniment for Mr. Boston’s readings and performed original songs that he creates in real time. He also visited some Peabody classes to sing, improvise, and demonstrate what it means to “play by ear”.
Our PreK through second graders were treated to an amazing and engaging morning of professional creativity. They asked thoughtful questions about the writing process, what it’s like to be a professional writer, how to get stories published, and more!
Next month we will welcome back author Kentrell Martin who will read from his Shelly series and teach Peabody students some new signs in ASL (American Sign Language).
