Bibb Schools Read for the Record

Kindergarten and Pre-K students at Sonny Carter Elementary covered the gym floor to set a record for reading.

Ingrid Evans Brown, the school's family engagement coordinator says kindergarten classes across with nation will read the same book at the same time Thursday to set the record. 


13WMAZ's Frank Malloy helped them by reading "The Snowy Day" by Ezra Jack Keats.

A crowd of more than 100 students cheered and read along with Frank.

Brown says while they hope to help break the reading record, they also want to get children excited about reading.

"Reading kind of sets the fundamentals for babies. Readers make leaders, and we want them to excel so we really push them to read," she said.
