(WIAT) — Children are used to their parents and teachers reading to them.

On Thursday, kids across Birmingham received a special treat.

Birmingham Mayor William Bell read the story of “Doctor Dolittle” to students at Brown Elementary school on Thursday, and the children were glued to his every word.

Mayor Bell was not the only volunteer to read to children in Birmingham, though.

Thursday was “Birmingham Reads Day.”

Hundreds of volunteers cracked open books at every one of the city’s elementary schools.
