Reading with Charlie the Caterpillar

Reading is a fundamental building block to a lifetime of learning, and unfortunately, many children don't have the skills they need. In fact, just 14 percent of current students in Detroit are reading at grade level by the third grade. 

Metro Detroit author Andy Gutman is trying to change that. He's continuing his effort to donate books and proceeds from sales of his books to local nonprofits. His latest creation, "Charlie the Caterpillar: What Can I Be Today?" is a colorful, 38-page story he conceived with his daughter, Riley, that focuses on the dreams all kids have about what they can be when they grow up.

He stopped by the Fox2 News studios Saturday morning with special guest, 13-year-old Cameron Klein of West Bloomfield, who despite his age, is a well travelled performer.
