Last week, Gavin's school had its annual family reading night. The theme was "Under the Stars," and it took place from 6:30 - 8:00 pm. Gavin was excited to stay up late!
We went to this event last year and it was a lot of un. They had community helpers, like a police officer, read. Each reader was set up in a different classroom and the families would move from room to room.
Gavin and his friend Claire were excited to see Officer Fletcher read. He helps out at the crosswalk in front of the school and lives in the neighborhood. He read "Creepy Carrots" and "Shark Vs. Train" - neither of which he had read before that night. He was pretty entertaining.

Next we went to hear Mr. Tabisz, the PE teacher, read. He usually doesn't get to read to the kids, and he was hilarious. The kids were doubled over in giggles. He read "The Day The Crayons Quit" and "The Book With No Pictures."

We heard one other teacher read. There was also a professional storyteller who started things off. It was lots of fun and we plan to attend every year!
