|On Tuesday, April 27, Operation Early Reading chairperson Maria Kim and nine Assistance League volunteers read The Adventures of Marco Flamingo Under the Sea to 3-, 4- and 5-year-old Head Start students at Congress Park School in Brookfield and Seventh Avenue School in La Grange. The preschoolers listened to the story, then colored a picture of Marco while coming up with an adventure of their own. |
"The kids' smiles and enthusiasm make it all worthwhile," Maria said. "Their expression upon learning that they were going to take a book home was heartwarming."
