Albany-- Students at an Albany school left their regular uniforms at home today as they dressed up as their favorite book characters.

Saint Teresa's Catholic School celebrated Childrens Book Week, a tradition that can be traced back to nineteen-twelve. Students and teachers from pre-K through eighth-grade dressed up with awards going to the best individual costume in each class and an award for the best overall class participation. Students and faculty members say it's a great way to keep the students interested in reading.

"This is getting students excited about reading and about books, and choosing their favorite character. They can go back to the early years and choose the characters they liked growing up and that's what a lot of our students have done"said  Grace Ledwitch with Saint Teresa's School.

This was the second time that Saint Teresa's dressed up for Children's Book Week. This year's overall winner was the eighth grade class.
