PBS Kids’ Super Why! and KCPT Kids’ book-loving owl, P.T., were at Johnson Elementary School in the Hickman Mills School District today to help kick off their summer reading program. Over 300 children packed the cafeteria to celebrate. The district gave each child 10 books to keep and a backpack. Bookmarks were provided by P.T. and Super Why!. The students were excited to get to meet both characters with a high five or a hug.
KCPT supports literacy and encourages summer reading through programs like Martha Speaks, Raising Readers and other programs throughout the metro area.
