PPA title bit_for blog post

Police officers in Birmingham, Alabama convened at the local city library to speak to children about the importance of literacy. The officers read to the children from the popular and hilarious book series Platypus Police Squad by Jarrett J. Krosoczka, acting out the characters of rookie Detective Zengo and seasoned Detective O’Malley. The officers used the free, downloadable PLATYPUS POLICE ACADEMY HANDBOOK that repurposes scenes and materials from the book series for read-aloud use.
