Sen. Huizenga celebrates National Reading Month

LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Mark E. Huizenga is celebrating National Reading Month by releasing three videos of him reading children’s books to viewers and by encouraging parents to read to their kids.

“Reading is critical to a successful education, and reading to children at a young age can help them develop an interest in learning, foster a creative spirit, and build self-confidence,” said Huizenga, R-Walker. “In honor of National Reading Month, I have recorded three videos to virtually share a love of reading with West Michigan children, and I encourage parents to join in the effort to help our children succeed through reading.”

Huizenga has released three reading videos. In the videos, the senator reads “Hedgie’s Surprise,” “If You Bring a Mouse to School,” and “‘Slowly, Slowly, Slowly,’ said the Sloth.”

Residents can access the videos by scanning the QR code on their smartphone or by visiting
