In early September of 2012, Nick Rokicki and Joe Kelley embarked on an “All-American Road Trip.” Although, this was no ordinary trip.
Through mid-November, Nick and Joe traveled to nearly 100 schools in 25 states in 40 cities over 15,000 miles! During the school visits, they read their book Pete the Popcorn and spoke to children about the importance of encouraging each other.
Below, you will find a series of videos produced at some schools.
