I never wanted to see my student hurt because of something so small. It’s the importance of being able to participate.

Louisville school bus driver Larry Farrish Jr. noticed a sad 1st grader on his morning route. 6-year-old Levi Carrier didn’t have pajamas for Pajama Day. As Farrish Jr. closed the bus doors, he watched as Levi slid into a seat away from his friends.

After Farrish Jr. finished up his morning routes, he headed to the store and purchased two pairs of PJs for Levi. “You were hurting this morning, you were crying, so I got you these pajamas,” Farrish Jr. recalls telling Levi. “He was so excited — you should’ve seen how his face lit up.”

“I can tell Mr. Larry is nice and his heart is filled with joy,” Levi said in a news release. “When he got me the pajamas, I did a happy cry.”.

Mr. Larry, as the kids call him, turned Levi’s whole day around. “No child should have to miss out on something as small as pajama day,” the bus driver said.

Levi isn’t the only Mr. Larry fan. “Larry is the absolute best and kiddos know they are in great, caring, capable hands with him!” one parent commented.
