The hallways of Edinbrook Elementary were bustling the evening of Dec. 12 as the school hosted its annual Book Walk event.
Students and their families/caregivers wound throughout the school’s hallways as music played over the loudspeaker, courtesy of principal-turned-DJ Aaron Krueger. When the music stopped, students hurried to the nearest laminated photo of a popular author on the wall, which were placed along the school’s walls and locker banks.
Principal Krueger then read off the names of a few authors, and any student touching the photo of one of the named authors received a ticket from nearby volunteers. The ticket winners could then exchange their ticket for a free book at the front of the school, where a wide range of options were on display.
