The wonder of words

Matt Peterson holds his daughter, Edda, 1, as his son Oscar, 3, sits nearby Thursday while they listen to a storybook read out loud inside the Prairie Woods Elementary School gymnasium in New London. The Petersons were participating in the Fathers Reading Every Day program, sponsored by New London-Spicer Early Childhood Family Education. Later in the evening, dads read to their children in the darkened gym with blankets and flashlights at hand. Tribune photo by Ron Adams
