State Rep. Laura Cox of Livonia will visit seven local elementary schools during the month of March in order to celebrate “March is Reading Month.”
Rep. Cox will be reading to students at Cass, Garfield, Hoover, Roosevelt and Webster elementary schools within the Livonia Public School District, as well as St. Edith and St. Michael Catholic schools. Rep. Cox will be reading “Duck for President” by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin, which details the journey of “Duck” who worked his way from a farmer, to Governor, to the highest office in the land.
“The celebration of reading month is about sharing the enjoyment and fun in reading,” Rep. Cox said. “Reading has the power to benefit children in numerous ways. I hope events like these will inspire students to pick up a book and let their imaginations take over.”
