Young Readers Video Challenge: Marissa & Benjamin Read ‘Three Loud Trucks’

Studies show reading together raises a child’s reading levels and math scores.

But academics aren’t the only thing that get a boost.

We can’t forget how precious cracking open a book can be to family time.

In Lakeview, 4-year-old Marissa and her 2-year-old little brother, Benjamin, are here to remind us what that looks like in the video above as they read “Three Loud Trucks” from the book “Trucktown Truckery Rhymes” by Jon Scieszka.

If you want to send us videos of your little readers, email the video to

We’ll be sharing them with you all month long!
