Mayor of the City of Montague Tiffanie Lorenzini share this year’s Read Across Siskiyou book, "The Lion and the Mouse," to promote the importance of early reading.

Wednesday, Nov. 18 is the date for the 13th annual Read Across Siskiyou event, sponsored by First 5 Siskiyou Children and Families Commission.

“The Lion and the Mouse” is available in English and Spanish, free of charge to all young children in Siskiyou County at their local Family and Community Resource Centers on Nov 12. 

This year, the story of choice is an introduction to the wonderful world of fables. The story offers wisdom about the importance of kindness and friends and that all creatures, large and small, are capable of great deeds.
