For this Monday’s Story Hour #VolunteersWithAVoice, we were joined by International Nova reading The Lion and the Mouse by Aesop.
International Nova is a Billboard-charting Latin, R&B, and Hip-Hop artist from the Bronx, NYC. Growing up in the Bronx, International Nova drew a lot of his musical inspiration from his surroundings and the music he grew up with. He has now worked with well-known artists such as Musiq Soulchild, Petey Pablo, French Montana, and members of the Terror Squad. He has also performed with artists such as Pitbull, Backstreet Boys, and Mario.
Nova is also an ambassador for Lifeline Animal Project in Atlanta. This is a nonprofit organization that fights against the unnecessary euthanasia of animals. He was inspired to join this cause when he went to visit an animal shelter and saw the cages jammed full of animals looking for a home. He says that he has always tried to give back and help out especially with animals and children. He has also made it a goal of his to help get as many animals adopted as possible.
For Nova’s #VolunteersWithAVoice Story Hour segment, he read The Lion and the Mouse by Aesop. This is a picture book that does not have any words, which Nova said he enjoys because it allows the reader to create their own story.
