SALT LAKE CITY -- A few hundred Salt Lake families practiced a valuable skill Wednesday at Northwest Middle School.

Families came together for a literacy night where parents and their children learned about the importance of reading together at home.

"A lot of parents don't know how to sit down at a table and teach their kids colors and learn sounds, be able to connect the words with pictures and be able to build those skills that are going to help them be successful in school," said Salt Lake City School District Superintendent McKell Withers.

Organizers with Read Today and the Salt Lake City Council provided learning activities, books and dinner so families would go away full of excitement about reading.
