State Rep. Stephanie Cummings joined first graders in Barbara Franck’s class at the Children’s Community School to read to the students and discuss her role as a state legislator. Rep. Cummings read the book, “The Book With No Pictures” by B.J. Novak, before reading the kids’ own version of the book which included a page written by each student and put together to create the story.

Rep. Cummings also talked about her role in Hartford and spent time listening to each student’s ideas about laws that might be good for the state.  There was almost universal agreement about shortening the school day but the group was split among “party lines” when considering changes to the dress code, with the young ladies voting to wear pajamas while the boys wear suits, and the boys voting for sweats and comfortable clothing while the girls wear dresses.
