Jumpstart’s campaign Record for the Record.

Across the United States, including in Eastern Jackson County, children had 'Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad' by David Soman and Jacky Davis read aloud to them as part of Jumpstart's campaign Record for the Record.

In partnership with the Pearson Foundation, the effort celebrated literacy and early childhood education, all while attempting to break the world record of a shared reading experience, set by last year's Read for the Record when 2.2 million people participated.

Kathy Newman, library assistant with Mid-Continent Public Library, visited a handful of schools Thursday morning to read the story aloud, including the early education program at Randall Elementary School in Independence.
