I was honored to learn that Kareem Dale, Special Assistant to the President on disability policy, recently read the Braille version of If I Ran For President to children at a U.S. Department of Education’s “Let’s Read. Let’s Move” event, according to a U.S. Department of Education website article.

The “Let’s Read. Let’s Move” program encourages children to develop a healthy mind and body and is part of the Obama administration’s “Together We Serve” initiative.

Patriotic book signing

A big thank you to everyone who stopped by the Twig Book Shop in San Antonio last month during the patriotic book signing on July 3. And thank you to all those young people who colored the activity sheet and shared their ideas of what they would do if they were President!
