Patty Lee desperately wants to be the top reader in the fourth grade and earn the right to wear the dragon costume in the Read Across America Day parade--but will Carmen Rosa Peņa read her out of the running? The race is on as Patty Lee devours books, read-alouds, and audiobooks. But with Carmen in the lead, Patty Lee turns to Mrs. Skorupski for a new plan that just might put her at the top. In this second Mrs. Skorupski story the quirky, heavily-accessorized school librarian inspires students to expand their reading experiences, cheering them on with her signature "Okily dokily." Join the excitement as everyone gets fired up with reading!
