Getting kids excited about reading at an early age was the goal as WPTV NewsChannel 5 anchor Mike Trim read to students at St. Thomas More Academy in Boynton Beach.

Mike read the book “Millie Waits for the Mail” to the pre-school students.

Reading to children at a young age is important and science backs it up.

The official Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics released a study that shows reading to preschool children a few times a week positively activates parts of the brain for imagery and narrative comprehension.
