Reading made fun; Thousands of NC students joined the Wyoming Read celebration

(Casper, Wyo.) - Roughly 1,000 Natrona County first-graders received a book of their choosing, met First Lady Carol Mead, and enjoyed an afternoon performance as part of the state wide Wyoming Reads celebration. Each student received the book that they chose in September, a hardback book with their name on the bookplate, and a copy of "Wyoming Firsts," a children's book written by Wyoming First Lady Carol Mead and illustrated by Wyoming high school students. Statewide, roughly 8,000 children participated at 35 locations in all 23 counties during this year’s Wyoming Reads celebration.
