Roosevelt students prove "you can't judge a book by its cover"

Students at the Roosevelt Elementary School in Hyde Park recently celebrated their favorite books in the first of three Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) events of the year, sponsored by ReadBoston. In keeping with the theme, "You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover," every student in kidergarten through grade 5 designed a quilt square representing the cover or his or her favorite book. On the day of the event, the students' work was displayed in the cafeteria, where students assembled their squares into a schoolwide quilt. Every child also received a book to take home to read with their families.
