-Michael Poore, LRSD Superintendent and Booker Arts Magnet students, Naomi Mkaneawire (5th grade), and Beck Hudelson (4th grade) | Arkansas reads one book is a district-wide initiative.  Little Rock School District is highlighting reading and tying it to financial literacy.  One Book One District is the slogan.  All students are enjoying the same book, “C.E.O. Cleo Edison Oliver, Playground Millionaire” by Sundee T. Frazier.  The book focused on fifth-grader Cleopatra Frazier who is full of business ideas that range from the sale of homegrown avocados to tooth-extracting franchise.  Along the way, she and the readers learn important lessons about saving and budgeting, entrepreneurship, business management and business ethics.  Celebrity readers have lent their voices to this powerful movement supporting reading, and their videos are posted on the LRSD website. Support for the Arkansas Reads One Book initiative has been provided by ARVEST Bank, Bank of the Ozarks, The Clinton Foundation, First Security Bank, and the Rotary Club of Little Rock (Club 99).  For more information, visit www.lrsd.org or Twitter #lrsd1district1book or like ’em on Facebook.
