WMTW shared a great story about how our Maine law enforcement officers are brightening the day of our kids by reading to them online.

Troy Morton of the Penobscot County Sheriff's Office read, "Cars, Driving Buddies". He chose this book because his son, Kyle, drives his own race car and a character in the book is named Sheriff.

Troy started this whole reading to kids thing, and it caught on. Knox County Sheriff, Tim Carol read a book picked out by his son and wife. I'm sure lots of grown ups liked it too.  I watched the entire video of the sheriff reading, "Scooby-Doo! Disappearing Donuts" by Gail Herman.

Here's Troy Morton reading, "Cars, Driving Buddies".

Craig Worster, the Millinocket Police Chief has also been reading online to kiddos.

Thank you to all of the adults that are showing the children around you kindness, especially right now when they need reassurance more than ever. Knowing that there are powerful adults like teachers, law enforcement and doctors that are looking out for them to not only keep them safe but happy as well, is a very needed message.
