Southside HIPPY families read 1,423 books and read for 23,021 minutes during the two months. Top readers from each home visitor received special prizes. Top readers were: Colin Fulcher, Adriana and Lilly Harrison, Aria Maya, Lexis Millington, Lillian Nix, Silas Smith, Stella Steel, and Tanner Vandergriff.
