Congratulations to our April Kid Reader of the Month, Audrina Lontkowski!  Audrina is 8 years old and in second grade and she loves to read to her little brother and teach him how to read.  When she was a small child, her favorite book was Sleep-over Mouse by Mary Packard, which her grandmother read to her.  Now, her favorite books are the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney - in fact, she loves them so much, she wanted to have her picture taken next to them.  Besides reading, Audrina also likes to play with her Paw Patrol toys, go the park and the gym with her friends and neighbors, and watch soccer and football.  When she grows up, she wants to be a DJ.
