‘MidWeek’ Visits Salt Lake Elementary
MidWeek publisher Ron Nagasawa took time recently to read aloud to the students of Sandra Low’s second-grade class at Salt Lake Elementary. As part of National Young Readers Week, the keiki enjoyed the entertaining tale of Muncha! Muncha! Muncha!. National Young Readers Week is an annual event that was co-founded in 1989 by Pizza Hut and the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. To make this week special, many schools recruit local “celebrities” to read aloud a favorite children’s book to classrooms.
