Students at Dickinson Avenue Elementary School tapped their feet and clapped their hands to songs sung by Brian Chevalier of Song Sung Productions during an assembly to kick off the school’s Pick a Reading Partner week on Feb. 28.

Surrounded by candy decorations, Mr. Chevalier sang songs about reading and coming together as a community to celebrate this year’s theme: “Reading is Sweet.” He invited students beside him to play maracas and to sing along to songs like, “This Land is Your Land” by Woody Guthrie. He also asked the students to share some of their favorite books, which ranged from Harry Potter to The Magic School Bus.

To conclude his visit, Mr. Chevalier encouraged the students to explore the school’s library as well as Northport-East Northport’s public libraries.
