Storytime event brings the return of volunteer reader

Everyone needs a hug once in awhile.

“Hugs make you feel good,” said Rob Gore, repeat reader for storytime at Barnes and Noble in Victorville on Saturday. Gore helped the bookstore highlight National Storytime by reading “The Perfect Hug,” written by Joanna Walsh and Judi Abbott.

The store holds specially scheduled Saturday storytimes with a volunteer reader. Saturday it was Gore, who has taught in the Victor Valley for 14 years.

It was Gore’s second time volunteering for the storytime event. He once read The Polar Express during a Christmas storytime.

“My favorite thing to do is read to kids,” Gore said. “I look forward to it.”

“The Perfect Hug” is a story about all types of hugs.

Listener Marisa Wilson, with a cat T-shirt on, said she enjoyed certain parts of the book.

“I like the tiger,” Wilson said, as she raised her very own stuffed toy tiger.

The store usually holds storytime at 10 a.m. Wednesdays in the Barnes and Noble Cafe. For more information, call (760) 245-3370.
