The author and city's mayor read to children Friday. The mayor broke a toe on his left foot in late February and is required to wear a protective boot for several weeks.

At the Kilmer K-8 School in West Roxbury, the author of the "Diary of A Wimpy Kid" series, Jeff Kinney, was joined by Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino as they each read excerpts from Kinney's "Wimpy Kid" books to two third grade classrooms Friday morning as part of a ReadBoston "Reading is Fundamental" event, according to city officials. A free new book was also given to each child.
