Cleverly chosen as a Superstar Reader

Aspen Times Staff Report

This week’s Superstar Reader of the Week for the Pitkin County Library’s Dive Into Books Summer Reading Program is Hayden Cleverly.

Each week, one child is selected as the Superstar Reader in the program, in which kids read books and earn Book Bucks for each book they finish. At the end of the summer, Book Bucks are exchanged for prizes.

Hayden will enter second grade at the Aspen Community School in the fall. Hayden, age 6 1/2, lives in Basalt. Here’s more on Hayden and her reading and non-reading habits and hobbies.

Favorite type of book: Spy books. “Like `Spy in the Sky.’ It’s about a little boy and this guy who spies. They go to South Carolina, but he really lives in North Carolina, so they take a balloon back to North Carolina.”

Another favorite of Hayden’s is “The Littles” series. “It’s about these little people that have mouse tails. My favorite is `The Littles Go Exploring,’ where they try to find the grandfather, who turns out to be a brook Little.”

Other favorite activities when not reading: Ballet, soccer, camp, biking, violin, computers.

Professional aspirations: Hayden wants to be a veterinarian. “We’re going to get a kitten and we’re going to name it Kiki.”

What Hayden plans to use her Book Bucks on: The Fuzzy Slap Bracelet and the Magic Bank.
