CINCINNATI -- Students at the Oyler School in Lower Price Hill didn't leave class empty-handed this National Reading Day.
Each student received two books, thanks to the “If You Give a Child a Book…” literacy campaign.

Since August, the Scripps Howard Foundation and Scripps properties across the United States have raised money to help kids learn how to read. In Cincinnati, WCPO – 9 On Your Side is donating the funds to Beech Acres Parenting Center and the Family Nurturing Center.
It was a great day to give out books to students at Oyler! Thanks to the generosity of @EWScrippsCo, @ScrippsHowardFd and @WCPO employees! And thank you to @BeechAcres for the partnership. @IamCPS #givelight pic.twitter.com/M557r7hEYi

Older students at Oyler got to choose the books they’d like to read and students in younger grades received two “Clifford The Big Red Dog” books and a visit from Clifford, himself.
After leaving Oyler, books will be transported to the Family Nurturing Center in Roselawn, where children will receive one during visitations.
