WUFT visited Millhopper Montessori School to see how children in the Gainesville area celebrated International Children’s Book Day.

In honor of national reading day, Millhopper Montessori School dedicated the entire day to celebrate the importance of reading and “dropped everything and read.”

Teachers and children sang and read together in groups. Outdoors, older students also read with young children to encourage the love of reading at an early age.
