As part of Read Across America Week and Dr. Seuss's birthday, children had stories read to them by community members.

Students at Cody School were read to by employees of Westfield Shopping Center Thursday afternoon.

Alyssa Fabik works at Bible Supplies at Westfield. She was one of the readers Thursday afternoon and said she likes reading to children as a way of showing them that books are fun. "It's a way to encourage kids to read and realize that you need reading no matter what and also that we like to have fun with books."

Fabik said it is essential to know how to read as it's something the students will use a lot. "Reading is something you do everyday," said Fabik, "You will read the newspaper, you might read a manual, you might read a schedule, you might read a time, but reading happens everyday and so we just want to encourage that love and ability to read and us as business owners we need people that can read."

Other classes at Cody School were read to as well by other Westfield Shopping Center partners from 10:00 a.m. until the end of the school day.
