Kindergarten students read to seniors at Sunset Home

A kindergarten student from Berrian Elementary reads to a senior at Sunset Home in Quincy (KHQA/Marcus Espinoza).

Kindergartner students at Berrian Elementary gave back while learning something new Thursday.

Students participated in an interactive reading session with Sunset Home residents and staff.

Tracy Schlepphorst, author of the "Emotion Belly Books" series, which helps children better understand their emotions, was on hand to guide the students in their interactive sessions.

"It's a great way to get the kids and the residents together and we did the manners lesson today because I think everyone agrees that manners are very important to the residents, very important to the kids," said Schlepphorst.

The Sunset Apartment Mission Fund provided each child with a "Henry and His Manners" book and stuffed doll.
