- A little Disney magic put a smile on kids' faces at Kings Elementary School in Southwest Fresno yesterday. It was all part of Disney's Magic of Storytelling campaign. ABC 30, Disney, and the Education Employees Credit Union all worked together to donate 5,000 books to Fresno Unified. I even got to get in on the fun. I spent some time reading with Miss Silva's sixth grade class at King Elementary, where more than 600 students received a free book to read. Administrators say the book campaign is especially important right now as most kids still don't have access to public libraries. The students at King Elementary couldn't wait to get their hands on some brand new books.

MILAEJAH JOHNSON: I picked "Wrinkle In Time" because I saw the movie about it. But it was a really long time ago. They took it off Netflix though. But I wanted to get the book and read about it to see if everything was true inside the movie. So I got the book. And now I'm gonna home and read it.
