COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI)-Your favorite story book characters could be found marching the streets of Columbus Thursday (11-15) morning. Coleman Head Start preschoolers held a storybook parade. The youngsters marched through the neighborhood wearing costumes of characters from their favorite books. Family and friends joined in on the fun, as well as both the Columbus Police Department and Fire Department. It was all an effort to celebrate reading and encourage children to enjoy books at an early age.
