To celebrate National Right to Read Week, Market Street Elementary School principal Jim Stitt read “Food Fight” by Carol Diggory Shields to a kindergarten classroom Feb. 8.

This book, illustrated by Doreen Gay-Kassel, is about what happens in your refrigerator when everyone in the house is asleep. The fruits compared themselves to each another, debating which fruit was the best. By the end of the story, all the foods were so upset that they got into a food fight in the refrigerator.

Stitt used this theme to create a costume to amuse the children and bring the story to life. He also brought stuffed pieces of food that they might find in a refrigerator, so that every time he said “food fight” children were allowed to throw the food at him.

The costume was made of purple balloons attached to a black trash bag that bunched up when he sat, giving the impression of a bunch of grapes.

Stitt reads to classrooms every year for Right to Read Week.
