Van Duyn Holds a African American Read In Day

One of the ways Van Duyn wanted to celebrate Black History Month was to have an African American Read In Day. During this day readers from the community visited classes and read books from African American authors and illustrators. Students listened to the story and then had a discussion afterwards about the story. The Read In happened at the same time throughout the school and included all grades from Pre-K to 5th. Students really enjoyed the stories and it was a great way to learn about some amazing authors and illustrators they might not otherwise have heard about.
