The Philadelphia Eagles Book Mobile rolled into Reading on Tuesday, Oct. 23, and made stops at 13th and Green Elementary, 10th and Green Elementary and Tyson-Schoener Elementary schools.

Second-grade students at each of the schools were soaring high after listening to Storybook Man, the book mobile’s official mascot, read several books and poems, including “Maura’s Birthday.”

Storybook Man’s costume, funny voices and animated body language entertained the children, who giggled as he flipped each page.

“The students always enjoy a visit from the Eagles' Storybook Man because he is entertaining and enthusiastic about reading,” says Christine Reichardt, a reading specialist at 13th and Green Elementary School. “His enthusiasm for reading is contagious, and the students leave his visit with a renewed zest for reading.”

After the story time, each student also received a new, free book and a Philadelphia Eagles bookmark.

The Eagles Book Mobile provides free storybook readings and books to underprivileged children in the Greater Philadelphia region. Operating in the summer and fall, the Eagles Book Mobile brings its Storybook Man to elementary schools, libraries, summer camps and recreation centers.
