What Does Brown Mean to You? (book cover)Preschool, PreK, and JrK students from the Tobin Children’s School and The Tobin School were excited to welcome Ron Grady, M.S.Ed, on Friday, February 24th to read his lovely children’s book, “What Does Brown Mean to Me?”

“Brown is the boy who welcomes the day.
Brown is the pup sleeping soundly away.”

In this adorable books’ lyrical text, the author celebrates all the brilliant and beautiful shades of brown, encouraging children to explore and see the beauty of their skin reflected in their families, communities and the world around them.
