Join in the Magic of Storytelling to benefit First Book

NEW YORK (WABC) -- The Walt Disney Company's Magic of Storytelling campaign came to life on Manhattan's Upper East Side Wednesday morning as our own Shirleen Allicot shared her love of reading with young kids.

The children's faces lit up as Shirleen read from a Dr. Seuss classic at PS 171 Patrick Henry on East 103rd Street.

You can join forces with ABC7NY and Disney by posting a photo of yourself while you read from your favorite childhood book.

Place it on Twitter on Instagram with #MagicofStorytelling between now and March 31 to help bring the knowledge of books to kids.

You can also buy books on Disney will donate a new book to First Book for every purchase.
