Some elementary schoolers are picking up a book.
in an effort to help set a world record.
It's part of a national read for the record campaign
trying to have the most people reading the same book
at the same time.
We wanted to participate not only to encourage students
to get more excited about reading, but also to see
that reading is big picture, a lot of opeople can
do the same thing at the same time, and we wanted
to be a part of that.
They're hoping to break a record set by the same event
where nearly two-and-a-half million people took part.
