AMARILLO -- A Forest Hill teacher and his wife are making it easier for kids to read this summer.

Daniel and Cristin Merker are launching a book mobile.

It's a chance for kids to check out a book for a week.

They collected more than 300 books for the event.

Kids can go every Thursday at 2:30 p.m. at Forest Hill Elementary.

Merker says it's been almost 50-years since there's been a book mobile in the Forest Hill community.
