During reading month (January), we invite guest readers to read to each class. We invite local politicians, the fire chief, police chief, school administrators, local merchants - anyone I can think of. Each class has one special reader during the last week of the month. If we can't get 'biggies,' then parents do very nicely. We recently had a parent as guest reader and she brought a bag with books she is reading (all at the same time). What a wonderful example for the children. She brought a cookbook, her school book from her current course, the newspaper funnies, her bedside book, a novel, and a magazine.
