Johnston Elementary celebrates Storybook Character Day
Some Buncombe County students are celebrating Storybook Character Day.
Teacher Chris Martin and his students wore costumes and read the story of Cinderella.
They identified the main characters, and, as a group, they talked about the setting of the story.
Afterwards, they paraded to the gym where every student at Johnston Elementary got to pick out a free book.
The Title One teachers at Johnston give away books three times a year.
Teachers say it's a great way to get books into the hands of children who may not have any at home.
