ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – In an ongoing tradition, Appalachian Power is sharing a special read-aloud book with students in elementary schools across Virginia, West Virginia and Tennessee.
This year, the company is distributing Someone Builds the Dream, which is authored by Lisa Wheeler.
The book was read by Appalachian Power’s vice president of distribution.
A video was added to the read-aloud collection of 21 videos on YouTube as well as a copy that was donated to each school library.
The YouTube video playlist was provided exclusively to all 450-plus elementary schools in the company’s service area for educational use.
The program began in 2001 as “Read to Me Day” and the company estimates that it has read to around 280,000 students and donated about 7,500 books since the program’s start.
