Students in Nine Schools to Read "The Mouse and the Motorcycle"
NORFOLK - Beverly Cleary’s The Mouse and the Motorcycle is the book chosen for this year’s family reading project – Nine Schools, One Book. Norfolk Public Schools Title I teacher Lisa Guenther says the program kicks off Monday in all Norfolk Public elementary schools, as well as at Sacred Heart and Christ Lutheran elementaries. If you are too tired to read some nights, Guenther invites you to log on to tapes of school principals, Mayor Sue Fuchtman and others reading chapters from the book. Guenther says her hope is that families develop a habit of reading together, and that some of the families go on to read the two sequels to the Mouse and the Motorcycle – and other good books.
