Parent volunteer Jillian Hovatter reads to her daughter, Adelaide Rucker, as they participate in Read to Me Day on Thursday at Explorer Academy in Huntington.

HUNTINGTON — Students across the country curled up around a good book with the help of an adult volunteer or two as the nation recognized the annual Read to Me Day, celebrated locally in Cabell County at all its 16 elementary schools.

Dozens of adult community members, employees of local businesses, parents and grandparents brought some of their own favorite children’s books or chose from the school’s library. Each student in each school was afforded the chance to be read to face to face by a volunteer, either in groups or one-on-one.

An annual occurrence, Read to Me Day is hosted each year in November.
