Guest readers included Mayor Don Stose, Ridgefield School Superintendent Nathan McCann, officers from the Ridgefield Police Department and the Cowlitz Indian Tribe, a hula instructor and Rally, the Ridgefield Raptors mascot.  Many parents read stories to the students as well.

The students dressed as their favorite character or wore their pajamas, and they also decorated their classroom doors with their favorite books and other fun literary themes.
