Step Into Storybooks was held Saturday morning at Central Elementary School in Nevada.

This year’s event — which basically seeks to increase children’s love of reading — was a collaborative event put on by the following organizations and entities: Central Elementary PTA, Kiwanis Club of Nevada, Nevada Jaycees, parents, Raising Readers in Story County, “Seussical the Musical” cast and crew, Story County Medical Clinic and Eastern Story County YSS. Sue Seaton, of the Nevada Kiwanis, said, “No one group does more than another.”

Donors, who help make the event possible, include: United Way of Story County, Kiwanis Club of Nevada and Burke Corporation. Seaton was especially excited to share that this year, “We broke our attendance record — 250-plus!”
