The Frogs at Greenbrier Elementary School got an early start to a read-a-thon Friday morning during "Pajama Day."
Members of the Charlottesville School Board, along with parents, and other volunteers went to class in their PJs to read to kids.
"Pajama Day" was a comfortable way to kick-off next week's "Read Aloud To A Child Week."
Educators say "Pajama Day" was a great way to promote reading awareness at home.
"It's great, and when ever I can be among our students and children, I am delighted," said Virginia Educator's Association President Princess Moss.
"We wanted to make sure people knew it was coming, so they can plan for it by putting it in their schedules, so everyone would be reading with children next week," said Greenbrier Elementary School Principal Faye Giglio.
The Frogs of Greenbrier read hundreds of books in 2005, and hope to do it again with the help of their parents every night next week.
