Welcome to Lotus Frog Elementary, KIDS! We have a special assembly today to welcome back an alumnus, Phillip Reilly, to share his children’s book: THE GOOD LITTLE LISTENER. Since becoming an uncle, he has re-examined the books he read as a child and realized that he may have learned the wrong lessons from some formative children’s stories— stories that shaped how he sees the world. By the end of this obviously educational solo comedy, you’ll reevaluate the books you loved and wonder if you too have fallen victim to bad lessons.

*Extra credit goes to all students who read his book and all the books on the required reading list before the assembly.*
