BRICK – Mayor Ducey is reading to Elementary School classes across Brick to celebrate National Reading Month.
Mrs. McFadden’s class at Midstreams Elementary School was Mayor Ducey’s first stop, where he read “What Lincoln Said” by Sarah L. Thompson.
According to Read Aloud 15 Minutes, a national non-profit group, every time you read to your child you are improving their learning advantage. If a child is not reading at grade level by the end of the first grade, then there is an 88% probability the child will not be reading at grade level by the end of the fourth grade.
Mayor Ducey visited Emma Havens School for Celebrity Reading Day to read “Dragon’s Love Tacos” by Adam Rubin to Mrs. Brown’s class and Mrs. Buccino’s class.
And finally Mrs. Reilly’s class invited Mayor Ducey to read “Oh the Places You’ll Go” in honor of Dr. Seuss, who once said
“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child.”
