One School One Book

“It doesn’t matter how you dance, my children, slow or fast, by jumps or steps. As long as you are free to dance in the open air by the light of the moon, all will be well,” said Poppy in this year’s One School One Book selection, “Poppy” by Avi, at Kenston’s Timmons Elementary School.

Angel Criado and Carmen Hansford of the Bainbridge Fred Astaire Dance Studio entertained students with a waltz and quickstep at a special One School One Book luncheon. When a whole school reads a book, there is much to talk about.
