Reading & Rhythm on the RiverFront in Detroit

 

Yesterday was one amazing day in Detroit, Michigan.  I had an opportunity to be a featured author at the Reading & Rhythm on the  River Front in Detroit Michigan.  I honestly thought that the parents and the kiddies would not show due to rain.  Not only did they show. The children showed out!

They got a chance to stand on the stage and act as rock stars.  It’s amazing to see how the children ranging from the ages three to five are simply fearless when it comes to performing in front of crowds.  Oh what a great time I had simply watching them.

Tonya Allen of the Skillman Foundation read first and I came right after reading one of my favorite child hood classics titled Green Eggs and Ham.  By the end of the story just about every kid in the audience chanted in unison “Sam I Am.”   Serving as a featured author for the 2011 Reading on the RiverFront series was one of the highlights of my summer.
