Along with a special appearance by Clifford the Big Red Dog, reading heroes from the community including staff from the Texas House of Representatives, police, EMS and fire department staff, members of the Texas State University baseball team, and personnel of the San Marcos Public Library read aloud to classes throughout the day. Adding to the fun were all the great literary and PBS themed costumes.
