Green celebrates ‘March is Reading Month’ with area students

LANSING—State Sen. Mike Green recently celebrated “March is Reading Month” with students at Bangor Central Elementary School in Bangor Township by reading them an entertaining children’s book on the American elections process and by talking with them about the importance of reading in their everyday lives.

“Reading is key to a bright future and reading to children at a young age has been shown to spark an interest in learning,” said Green, R-Mayville. “Family reading is also a great opportunity for parents and their children to spend time together.”

March is Reading Month is celebrated every year. The purpose is to highlight reading as a fun and educational activity for children, while also promoting improved literacy.

In addition to reading to students in area schools, Green provides free March is Reading Month bookmarks to libraries, schools, parents and students throughout the district.
