READ ALOUD DAY

State Rep. Mitch Bolinsky, R-106, participated in World Read Aloud Day on Tuesday, February 4, at Newtown Middle School. The annual event aims to advocate for global literacy by engaging students with oral storytelling. “Reading to students is one of the joys of my job as a state representative,” said Rep. Bolinsky, who read “The Three Questions” by Jon J. Muth. “I chose this book because of the lessons it teaches about compassion and kindness, both values that are ingrained in the Newtown community,” said Rep. Bolinsky. “I think the book hit home for the students and is something they can take with them as they become more civically engaged in our town.”
