This book’s a real head-scratcher

January 24, 2013 

Five-year-old Janaiya Pendergrass listens to Helen Fellers read 'From Head To Toe' by Eric Carle. Students from Gonzales Gardens Child Development Center celebrated National Reading Day at USC's Center for Children's Books and Literacy. National Reading Day is designed to help pre-K through third-grade students develop the literacy foundation they need to become lifelong learners. The students got to listen to several books read by librarian Helen Fellers, get a tour of the stacks and each received a book to take home.
