While their peers were leisurely lounging overa bowl of cereal before school, watching the latest episode of cartoon characters, some students at Riviera Beach Elementary were hard atwork.

Each Tuesday morning this spring, bright and early at 8 a.m., over 150 youngsters filtered in to the school's media center to bepart of the "Please Read To Me" program. For some, the effort was monumental. Others enjoyed every minute of it.

The eight-week program began back in April. Each week, four teachers volunteered to read aloud to younger students while older children read independently.

What was the incentive to follow through with the commitment? A pancake and sausage breakfast with a surprise guest. The guest turned out to be the Oriole Bird. Not bad, but with the O's record lately, maybehe's lucky to get invited anywhere.

A far subtler reward was to be with your peers while having a good time and learning to read for pleasure.
