TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Today kicks off "Love of Reading" week at Tucson schools and KGUN9 is helping by reading to kids,

We love to read, we do it for a living!  So, who better to volunteer?

Good Morning Tucson anchor Samantha Cortese visited La Paloma Academy today.  She read Clifford to a class of Kindergartners.

KGUN9 reporter and CW anchor Whitney Clark read Dr. Seuss classics to kids at Coyote Trail Elementary. 

The week-long effort encourages kids to explore their imagination and improve their vocabulary.

For kids, experts say the key is to make reading fun.
