KPBS will once again bring One Book for Kids to Rosa Parks as part of their One Book, San Diego event and activities. The author/event visit this year will include the author, Dorina Gilmore visiting with all 3rd grade classrooms in the MPR where she will read her book, Cora Cooks Pancit, talk about how she became a children’s book author and host a brief Q and A time with the students. Each child in 3rd grade will be provided with a hard copy of the book. We enjoyed her two years ago when her book was first selected as the One Book, One San Diego For Kids<http://www.kpbs.org/one-book/kids/> read and the students loved her. KPBS also arranged for a local Filipino cultural organization to join in the event to share some of their dances and music in costume.

- Rosa Parks 3rd grade students celebrate books! We are excited because this is the first year that School in the Park and Rosa Parks Elementary have participated in the One Book, One San Diego program.
- This cool program chooses one book per year for everyone in our community to read together, and through the process we learn more about our world, ourselves and each other. This year, the book for kids is called Jingle Dancer. We’re very excited to have the author of Jingle Dancer at Rosa Parks Elementary to speak to students and read her story.
- She also visited 3rd grade Rosa Parks students during their School in the Park week while they were at the San Diego History Center learning about San Diego's Kumeyaay population. History Center 3rd Grade 2013-14 Curriculum
- One Book for Kids program is the children’s companion program to One Book, One San Diego. One Book is a partnership between KPBS and 68 local public libraries throughout the community!
