Readers of all ages came Thursday to Northview Elementary School in Peru for a Family Reading Night and Book Fair. The fair offered books to students and families at affordable prices. Half of sales went to the school. Teri Chasteen brought her daughter and two granddaughters. Chasteen bought a “Monster High” book and “Silverlicious” for her granddaughter, Angel Hougas. “Oh she just loves ‘Monster High,’” Chasteen said. “I wish I had all the Monster High dolls,” Angel said. And “Silverlicious”? “I like it because it goes to a game and it’s pink and glitter,” Angel said. Superintendent Mark Cross dressed as Clifford the Big Red Dog and students had their pictures taken with him. Classrooms had activities, such as the “Super Why” spelling game from PBS Kids. “Super Heroes” (police, firefighters, veterans, and nurses) read books to children. The theme of the night was “Reading Gives you Super Power!” In the gym were reports from classes about books they read, displayed on colorful handmade posters. “Each class did one about a book they chose from the book fair,” said Kimberly Schuetz, teacher’s aide. “And they had to present it to the whole school about why they should read the book.” One class read “Under The Ocean.” Dawn Moutray of Varna brought her granddaughter, Avery Moutray. “She just couldn’t wait to show me this,” Dawn Moutray said. Avery’s report said: “My favorite part of the book was Treasure Island. I really liked this part because the pirates are funny and it was fun.’ She added by saying: “The other part I like is the squid trapping the submarine.” “I like that they come in and choose the books,” Dawn Moutray said. “They were very excited about doing these posters.”
