Lamar is a 21-year-old staff member he said he couldn’t remember the last time he chose to pick up a book during his personal free time. At first, he said he thought drop everything and read was silly and should only be for the kids. Once he understood that by him modeling reading a book in a positive way and how it influences children, he became more open to the process. Lamar has grown to look forward to this daily time and says that he feels like it is almost like therapy- “it’s a nice break in the day for me although I’m still working- we can all just chill and relax together, I think everyone should do this.”
