That is a very declarative statement, but it is one that little Mr. Tony Bailey can claim bragging rights too! Yes, this all-star achiever is in the first grade at LBJ (Mrs. Tina Coyle’s class) and has read 100 books. Mrs. Tina allowed him to raid her prize box and gave him a crisp new $10 bill. As she felt he deserves a little extra gift for reading so many books. After all how many books did the average American read last year? Not audiobooks, e-books nor magazines but books. Reports are now stating that books have been abandoned for e-books on our electronic devices. The LBJ FRC would like to remind everyone that March is Dr. Seuss’s birthday month. During this celebration of reading, challenge yourself to read a book. It may be hard to slow down long enough as we move ever so fast but our children will be delighted as we practice reading to them and with them!
