About Corey Cares for Nana! A Story of History, Love, and Respect!
Corey wants to one day SOAR to outer space! He is sure that Guion Bluford, the first African-American Astronaut is who he will be for the school's Multicultural Day Celebration UNTIL... He learns a lesson in African-American History from his beloved Nana! The power of who he is and what he can become are wrapped in the pages of an old and tattered photo album. Corey understands that RESPECT is given to those who have sacrificed so much for him. NOW it is his turn to give back and CARE for those who have given so much love and care to him! Sit with Corey and Nana as they take a trip back. You too can find your future in the richness of history! After all... The sky's NO LIMIT to the greatness in YOU!
