C. Haynes and friends enjoying their pizza party for C. Haynes winning the library's Reader of the Month contest for February. To win reader of the month, students must submit a 5 sentence paragraph explaining why they love reading by telling who their favorite characters are, what their favorite titles are, how reading makes them feel, etc. C. Haynes says, "I love reading for many reasons. One of them is that I can get comfortable and then read. Once I get really focused I feel like I am actually in the book. My favorite series is probably Diary of a Wimpy Kid. My favorite book from the series has to be Dog Days. The movie is pretty good too but I think that the books are btter than the movies. I also like sports books like Mike Lupica's. The most recent book of his was Comeback Kids. I really liked that book because my favorite sport is football. Sometimes I read my book in my beanbag chair which is comfortable. After I get done with books, I feel like I hopped right out of hte book. That is why I love reading." Congrats C. Haynes!
