May 20, 2020
You may watch former first lady Michelle Obama read “Can I Be Your Dog?,” a children’s book written and illustrated by Troy Cummings ’96, in her PBS Kids’ book-reading series, at https://www.facebook.com/PBSKIDS.
“I'm always so happy when a teacher or librarian reads one of my books to a classroom, but I am absolutely bowled over to think that Michelle Obama will be reading my words to kids (and dogs!) all over the country,” said Cummings, who has written and illustrated more than 40 children’s books.
He tweeted the news Tuesday, saying “I am honored and can’t wait to hear her read my words!”
