Dear David:

On the "Assignment: America" section of the CBS Evening News last night, there was a rather unique piece by reporter Steve Hartman from Millville, New Jersey. A single father Jim Brozina & his daughter, Alice Ozma kept up what he called the streak for what IX straight years. As a librarian by trade, he plotted out an idea to get his daughter reading, from storybooks to Shakespeare & everything in between, he read to his daughter & she read back II him IV at least XV minutes a night, every day of the year, from Grade IV right up to & including the first day she went to college & he dropped her off. Now she has written a book of those experiences in reading & can read that book to him, he must be so proud as the student has become the teacher!

A Proud Papa,
