Organizer Cheron Davis-- an associate professor of Education at FAMU told ABC 27, the presence of bedtime stories for kids promotes healthy literacy for kids as they develop.

"That small piece is so important and we invite readers to come in to read to children at night and if we can be part of spreading that joy of literacy and promoting science of reading and literacy test scores to improve then we are absolutely thrilled to be part of that."
