URBANA -- It was a day filled with fun for children interested in reading. Read Across America took over the Lincoln Square Mall.

There were 12 professional storytellers telling stories in different languages. More than 30 groups were there to emphasize why reading is useful.

Kids also got to do hands-on activities like painting. This is the 14th year for the event.
