A class of kindergarten pupils from Georgia, USA, recently threw the mother of all parties to celebrate after each of them managed to read a total of one million words in one year.
The party, dubbed ‘Millionaire Bash’, reportedly brought together the pupils and their parents who came to witness their children walk down the red carpet.
The youngsters arrived at the party in a limousine, walked on the red carpet and even signed autographs for their guests, who were their families and friends.
Among those who were celebrating their huge accomplishment was one Breyden Suragh. Just like the other kids, he had also read a million words.
His proud mother, Denetta Suragh, said:
“The school marked each student's number of words with reading logs. They estimated that 1 million words are equal to 250 books, which each student read throughout the year. This year, the entire class met the goal, as opposed to just a handful of students. It is indeed worth celebrating.”
According to the proud mom, her son was 'all smiles' during the party. He especially loved the part where he had a chance to ride in a limousine.
The party was seen as a way of encouraging the youngsters to read even more, the message being that reading can be very rewarding.
