“READING ABOUT TOLERANCE”



State Rep. Bruce Rendon (103rd District), adorned in a “Cat in the Hat” hat, reads “Priscilla McDooleNut Doodle McMae Asks ‘Why?’” to Heather Lamoreux’s third grade class March 9 (March is National Reading Month). Rendon said he chose to read the book (about tolerance and how one small person can change things), written by Janet Mary Sinke of Dewitt, after he learned about it from his chief of staff, who also lives in Dewitt. Students said some of the messages of the book are to “just be yourself” and “no matter what you look like we’re the same.” Rendon encouraged the children to read and passed out bookmarks in not only Lamoureux’s class, but also in the classrooms of Mrs. Michelle White, Mrs. Alicia Thompson, Mrs. Lori Warson and Mrs. Angela Mann. Earlier in the day he had visited Roscommon Elementary School and read to third and fourth graders there. (Photo by Cheryl Holladay) State Rep.
