Author to visit local schools

DOWNEY - International children's author Scott Sussman will read from his book, "Silly the Seed" at Lewis Elementary on Feb. 29 and Price Elementary on March 1.Sussman, originally from Orange County but now living in Rome, Italy, will offer a unique perspective on the differences between reading for fun and for school. "The key is to reach them as they're learning to read, before they associate reading strictly with school and perhaps conclude that reading is boring," Sussman said. "With the right perspective and expectations, they'll be more likely to learn to love reading."
