The students at Conley Elementary in Tallahassee had a special book reading this morning.

Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll read one of her favorite books to the student, "A Bad Case of the Stripes," and the kids asked her plenty of questions. They asked if she knew President Obama, and she quizzed them on their local government knowledge.
Carroll says she was more than happy to be with the children to read.

"It really made me feels as if I were at home with my own children, and I volunteered a lot and did things like this in my community back in my former district. So it just really made me feel comfortable and being at home again with the children," Carroll said.

The students listened carefully as she read, and at the end Carroll asked the students questions about the book. Carroll says she also enjoys getting out in to the community because it reminds people that she is real, and not an untouchable elected official.
