BROOKLAWN, NJ (CNBNewsnet)—The Alice Costello Elementary School (ACES) was one of this year’s winners of the Philadelphia Phillies Phanatic About Reading program. The Phillie Phanatic is the star of children's books and as a result has turned his love of reading into the exciting Phanatic About Reading program presented by Comcast.

Studies have shown that children who are encouraged to read items of their own choosing tend to spend more time reading independently, and as a result, their literacy scores improve. Founded in 2004, the program encourages students to read for a minimum of 15 minutes a day to improve their literacy skills. Each year teachers in the South Jersey and Philadelphia area are encouraged to enroll their classrooms and join the nearly 40,000 students already reading with the Phanatic!
