Paradise Canyon Elementary School’s recent family reading night was heartfelt. Before reading her book “Scruffy and the Egg,” author Angela Sanchez explained that when she was a teenager, her father and she lost their home and lived in shelters before being able to rent a home again. They would see a stray dog they called Scruffy, and they told each other stories about the dog. In the book, Scruffy becomes separated from his family and he joins up with an egg in his attempt to find his family again. The two of them have several adventures. The event was sponsored by the Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse.
