In March, The Tilton School Peer Mentors were invited to Kernan Elementary School to participate in Community Reader's Day. Community Reader's Day brings community members from various career fields to visit the students, read to them, and tell them about their lives and careers.

The peer mentors met at the library for some social time and refreshments and then separated into their designated room to read to the children. They had the opportunity to visit a 2nd-grade classroom and read "A Little Bit Different" by Claire Alexander to the students. "A little Bit Different" is a funny and touching story about accepting and celebrating what makes each one of us different and unique. The team also provided the class with goody bags full of candy and crayons with a special message reminding them that we are all different and that being unique means being beautiful.
