Monday morning, Tennessee's First Lady made a stop in East Tennessee to read to children.
Crissy Haslam read to more than a dozen kids at the McGhee Tyson Air National Guard Base.
The First Lady wants kids to pledge to read 20 minutes a day with their families in her Read20 Book Club.
She has been traveling the state this month visting with military families to recognize their service and sacrifice.
She read Judy Moody Declares Her Independence. Each month the First Lady picks a new book.
"It's really important for our state for children and families to get involved in reading," said Crissy Haslam, "Right now, we have about 46% of our third graders reading proficiently. Reading is one of those things that is indicative of the future of a child's education."
After the reading, the kids were able to get a free book from the First Lady and sign a pledge promising to read for 20 minutes every day.
