REFUGIO – Don’t step on my blue suede shoes. The children who participated in the July 11 summer reading program were introduced to the joy and power of rock ‘n’ roll in its early days.  

Anna Garcia, Refugio ISD District Librarian, brought the book, “Shake, Rattle and Turn That Noise Down!” to life as she shared the author’s childhood determination to emulate Elvis Presley after being inspired by the iconic artist’s music. 

Garcia also shared some historical items with the children; vinyl records and a record player.

While listening to Presley songs, the children enjoyed decorating their very own blue suede shoes.
