To foster a love of reading while bringing students together, Hampton Bays Elementary School has been hosting its annual “Reading Together” initiative, in which all students have read “Zoey and Sassafras: Dragons and Marshmallows” by Asia Citro.   

Along with the reading, the students also participated in activities during the past several weeks that are related to the book, which tells the story of a young scientist who can see magical creatures.

To further engage students in this literary event, the school’s STEM lab adopted a bearded dragon that has been named Marshmallow after the dragon in the story.     

The initiative will culminate on Wednesday, Jan. 22, at 6 p.m., at the school’s annual Family Literacy/Author Illustration Night, where 16 local authors and illustrators will be on hand to autograph their books and share their life stories.
