Welcome Chris Rumble!
Chris Rumble, author and artist came to Hawthorne ES to kick off a great day of reading excitement at Hawthorne ES. Chris is very engaging as he uses his musical talents (singing and guitar playing) to engage kids in reading. He loves to use familiar tunes, many of which are oldies that adults love, to the hook learners using fresh and fun lyrics! He also has a strong anti-bullying message which and many messages of encouragement naturally embedded into everything his activities. Chris also revealed his new artistic path. This gift came to him later in life and he showed us expansive and elaborate 3D looking murals that have started to grace the walls of many school libraries. I hope we can someday have a Chris Rumble original in our library. Thank you so much for sharing your many gifts with us today, Chris!
