KMPH Fox 26 weatherman and co-anchor Kopi Sotiropulos got the kids involved Tuesday as he read “The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs” during a noontime event at Sunnyside Regional Library.

Sotiropulos, wearing one of his trademark wild shirts, folded life lessons into his time spent with the kids and had a lot of fun. “Be silly like Kopi,” he asked the children during a repeat-after-me session that emphasized the importance of reading.
