Sophia F. from Wilmington, NC is conquering her reading mountain! Sophia is a third-grade student at Murrayville Elementary working with Ms. Hawthorne on her reading and spelling. Sophia was chosen as Star of the Month for her ambitious reading goals and success so far.

March is National Reading Awareness Month, and ReadAloud.org is asking families everywhere to commit to reading aloud with their children for at least 15 minutes each day for 21 ​straight days.
