To promote early literacy and honor the 40th anniversary of the Eric Carle classic The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Mayor Michael Nutter (right) and District Deputy Chief of Early Childhood Education Donna Pierkarski (left) read to pre-K and kindergarten students October 8 at William Dick Elementary. Dick, an Empowerment School, was hosting the second annual Jumpstart’s Read for the Record event.

Prior to the event, students created drawings and poems inspired by the book to decorate their classrooms.
