June 3, 2021AT IRVING ELEMENTARY, 3RD GRADE TEACHER CHRIS NELSON COULDN'T PROVIDE THE INSIGHT INTO AN AWARD-WINNING BOOK THAT HIS STUDENTS SOUGHT. SO HE WENT STRAIGHT TO THE SOURCE.In the award-winning book “One Crazy Summer,” New York Times bestselling author Rita Williams-Garcia tells the story of three sisters who travel to Oakland, California, in 1968 to meet the mother who abandoned them.It’s an engaging and historically accurate children’s book, and one that became near and dear to the hearts of the Irving Elementary Bullpups in Chris Nelson’s 3rd Grade classroom.
