Larsen 2nd graders were lucky to have author Lezlie Evans come and talk to them about reading, being an author and her books.  She said "When a child opens a book he or she opens the portals to wonderous places, exciting adventures, and exciting experiences.  When you read with a child, you create strong bonds and lasting memories, and when you teach children to read it empowers them. So go ahead,  read with a child today!"  Thank you for visiting Lezlie Evans!
