On Tuesday, November 7, the Education Department Reading Center sponsored a “Read Aloud with Children” event. Maureen Roussi, an award winning educator modeled how to read aloud with children with the book Each Kindness by illustrated by E.B. Lewis. Graduate literacy students, children from the community, literacy instructors and librarians joined in the fun. A copy of Each Kindness was raffled off. The read aloud celebration was organized by Michelle Cefaratti.
