Let’s Learn: Careers/Hobby Week
For today’s story time we have Viola Davis reading Rent Party Jazz by William Miller and illustrated by Charlotte Riley-Webb. The story takes place in the 1930s and Sunny and her mother are just scraping by to pay their rent working in a factory and for a coal man before school. One day Sonny’s mother loses her job and Sonny meets a jazz player who offers to play at her house to help raise money for their rent. Check out this teacher’s guide and parent’s guide for activities based on the book.
