State Representative Henry Yanez (D-Sterling Heights) was at elementary schools in Macomb County on Monday reading to students in honor of March is Reading Month. Yanez read books to third grade students at Cromie Elementary in Warren and Huron Academy, Havel Elementary School and Jack Harvey Elementary School in Sterling Heights.

“A love of reading, beginning at an early age, is crucial to the development of young minds and provides benefits down the road in educational achievement,” Yanez said. “I’m a huge supporter of our neighborhood schools so it was a real pleasure being able to read to so many third and fourth grade students.”

Yanez has visited other schools in his district to read to children throughout the month of March.
