Debbie Levy at Savoy Elementary School

It was a musical morning at Savoy Elementary School. Author, Debbie Levy led students on a lyrical trip through history with her picture book describing the story of the famous song We Shall Overcome. While reading aloud from the book, Debbie played selected clips of the song being sung by well known musicans/musical groups. Students happily joined in by singing, toe tapping, and clapping. In addition to sharing the story of the song, Debbie also spoke about the process of writing the book including a discussion about the fabulous illustrations by Vanessa Brantley-Newton. Following each of her presentations, Debbie signed each student’s book and encouraged them to share the book with their parents and grandparents. The books for this special event were donated by the National Home Library Foundation.
