INDEPENDENCE—State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) participated in St. Michael’s Elementary School’s annual “Right to Read” Week.

She shared her love of books with a rapt audience of students from the 3rd grade through two books entitled “The Best Week Ever” and “Volcano.” The books were written by her son when he was nine and ten years old respectively.  Props included a ‘green magic potion’ that makes you fly. With a class of sixth graders, Rep. Anielski spoke about the process behind how a bill becomes a law including the six graders debating with amendments and votes.

“Reading is a critical skill in every walk of life,” said Rep. Anielski. “I enjoyed both reading and speaking with the students. Helping students understand the process of their government is important to building strong, involved civic leaders.”

Right to Read Week aims to encourage students of all ages and skill levels to develop a lifetime reading habit through celebrity examples and other activities. The goal is to expose students to as many different backgrounds on reading as possible.
