    I feel that inviting a star to a library can be an encouragement for kids to pick up the habit of reading books. When the children see that their stars are reading books they will would want to follow their example and start to read too. This could be a good strategy to get children to read. A star reading to children in a library will cause crowds of people to gather in the library and this can boost library business as well! I hope this will help children to pick up reading habits!

      It doesn’t hurt that LeVar Burton is the long-time host of Reading Rainbow, a show that strongly emphasizes reading for young children.
