LA CROSSE. (WXOW)- Students at North Woods International School participated in the world’s largest shared reading experience on Thursday morning.

Each year, Jumpstart picks one children’s book for students and teachers to read.

Almost 400 students and staff at North Woods did a story walk to participate.

The story walk takes active reading to a new level. Pages from a children’s story are posted along the route outside of the school. Teachers say the walk helps build students interest in reading while also encouraging outdoor activity.

“In regards to the students, it’s just a fun way to get them involved with books. Not everyone enjoys taking a book and sitting down and just reading a book on their own, so it’s a fun way to keep them active and participating but also enjoying some literacy through the story in our book walk,” Title one teacher, Sara DePaolo said.

In 2013, Jumpstart broke the world reading record with almost 2.5 million children and adults sharing the reading experience.
