RESULTS: Should Kids Be Penalized for Reading TOO Much?

RESULTS: Should Kids Be Penalized for Reading TOO Much?

In a blog post, KCOL Mornings host Al Malmberg wrote about 9-year old Tyler Weaver. The boy won the "Dig into Reading" contest at the Hudson Falls Public Library for the fifth year in a row.

Everybody is happy for little Tyler, except for the library's Director, Marie Gandron. She wants to disqualify him so he can't compete any more. She says other kids quit because they can't keep up with him.
