CLARENDON HILLS – Prospect School, 100 N. Prospect Ave., Clarendon Hills, will host a presentation as part of "Family Reading Night" to teach families and students about the world.

The event will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday and feature a GeoSphere – a 20-foot inflatable globe. Children will be given a ticket for a specific time and then will be able to step inside the globe and learn about the world.

Each presentation will be about 20 minutes, and there will be five presentations, with the first one at 6 and the last one at 7:40 p.m. Because of limited space inside the globe (30 people maximum), officials ask that only children go inside, and parents will be asked to wait outside in the Multipurpose Room.

Several teachers and a geography expert will be inside the globe.

Family Reading Night goes along with the school's "One Book, One School" reading of "MVP" by Douglas Evans. "MVP" is an adventurous story about Adam, a 12-year-old boy, who is asked to travel around the world in just 40 days.
