Organizers of the sixth annual Zee Bus tour are hoping to see a lot of preschoolers climb aboard the book bus this summer.
"Reading at the preschool level is so beneficial," Zee Bus organizer Mary Beth Timmer said. "We are encouraging parents and youngsters to climb on board. In fact, we have a free book and a packet of information especially for preschoolers."
Sixteen stops have been scheduled Mondays through Thursdays until August 6. Then, a party for all the readers happens August 7, 12 noon, at Roosevelt Elementary. Last summer, more than 700 children enjoyed the bus, which is open to all students in the 94-square-mile district, regardless of which school they attend. Home schoolers are also welcome.
