PEORIA, Ill. -- Some community leaders will be spending free time reading to students at Kellar Primary School.

The 21st Annual Guest Reader Week officially kicks off on Tuesday.

Students will get to hear more than 85 new books and learn about the careers of guest readers.

Peoria Police Chief Settingsgaard, Bradley University President Joanne Glasser and even Wildlife Prairie Park animals will be stopping by the school to read.

WEEK/WHOI's very own Chuck Collins helped get things warmed up on Monday for media day. He read students "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs".
