VALHALLA, N.Y. -- Laying on the floor in their pajamas, Virginia Road Elementary School students in the Valhalla Union Free School District listened to author LuAnn Adams read books aloud. On Nov. 13, VRES students and their parents returned to school in the evening for the "Bedtime Stories" event.
All of the children -- and even some parents, donned comfy clothing, bathrobes and slippers while carrying blankets and stuffed animals.
Adams, who has visited the school before in the past for a different literacy event, read tales to the children as they sprawled out on the floor or cuddled up with a parent.
The students also participated in arts and crafts and spent time with friends and family. Many VRES teachers, including Principal Ada Jimenez-Parker, were in attendance.
The Virginia Road Elementary School is at 86 Virginia Road, White Plains.
