Sen. Cabrera Reads to Derby 3rd Graders as Part of Read Across America Week

This week state Senator Jorge Cabrera (D-Hamden) participated in Read Across America Week and Day at Bradley School in Derby. The senator read children’s books to the school’s third graders and later answered students’ questions about legislative government. He said it was an incredibly rewarding experience.

“It was a pleasure to read to these amazing kids and field all the great questions they asked me about my job as a state senator,” said Sen. Cabrera. “Developing a love for books and reading is so important when one is young. This week continues to make literacy a focal point for our students and does so in a way that is enjoyable and fun.”

According to the National Education Association (NEA), they launched Read Across America in 1998 as a year-round program to celebrate reading. Per the NEA’s website, they are the country’s largest professional employee organization committed to advancing the cause of public education with three million members that work at every level of education.
