The Charles Olbon School Home & School Association in Woodland Park sponsored a whole school, live stream author visit event. The author of The Secret Rhino Society, Jonathan E. Jacobs, read his book while also telling his own story of his journey of becoming an author.
His book touches on themes, such as “do not judge a book by its cover” and “accept others for who they are.” Prior to the author’s visit, the students were provided with the opportunity to submit questions to Mr. Jacobs via the teachers. Students were also able to leave comments and questions during the event. There were over 150 questions/comments sent from second grade students alone. The questions were answered during the Q&A segment of the event.
After his reading, Mr. Jacobs provided the school with a printable craft which the students were able to utilize to create a scene from the book.
