The pre-school to kindergarten reading class at St. Mary's Catholic School in Pierce City participated in a national effort with more than two million other children.

Teacher Lanetta Gripka read "Llama Llama Red Pajama" by Anna Dewdney for Jumpstart's Read for the World Record. The project works to end the early education achievement gap.

Making the experience more fun, the children and their teacher came to school in their pajamas.
