Dad and daughter read while enjoying doughnuts and fruit.Have you thought about finding time in the morning to read with your child? About 100 students brought a parent or grandparent with them to John Muir Elementary School on the morning of October 6. Families stopped by the library before school to pick out free donated books and read together. Doughnuts and fruit were also provided.

Teacher-librarian Tim Platt started the Parents and Pastries tradition six years ago. He invites families to come read before school three times a year. Muir families donate the new and gently used books.
