Photos: AAPS celebrates March Reading Month

Children's author and illustrator Patricia Polacco shared the stories behind her books at Burns Park Elementary March 28.

Swinging hula dancers, a reading dog, and live storytelling from world-famous authors: our schools sure know how to make March Reading Month interesting.

But even though the month was filled with fun activities, there was plenty of good old-fashioned reading time too.

The AAPS News captured just a sliver of all the great Reading Month events. Check out the slideshow below to view the visits from author/illustrator Patricia Polacco, Colby the reading service dog, a 5,300 book donation to an orphanage across the globe, and a luau that happened the same day as the tornado.
