It was part of the African-American Literature Read-In, celebrating local African-American authors.
Here’s how I spent the most enjoyable part of my day—as a guest reader at Hoover Elementary School in Oakland. I love that look of discovery on kids’ faces when they learn something new. 😊 pic.twitter.com/a78oU1DF1b— Spencer Christian (@SpencerABC7) February 9, 2019
Students learned about tornadoes and waterspouts from Spencer's children's book "Can It Really Rain Frogs?"
Some students had some wild guesses, one saying: "I know if you're up in an airplane you can drop a ton of frogs!"
The African-American Literature Read-In is sponsored by the Oakland Public Education Fund. 100 volunteers read at 41 schools for the event.
Disney, the parent company of ABC7 News, is also aiming to donate one million books to educators who serve kids in need. Just go to: magicofstorytelling.com
