Utah First Lady Jeanette Herbert and Mayor Ralph Becker helped some Salt Lake City school children aim for a reading world record Thursday.

Jumpstart's Read for the Record, in partnership with the Pearson Foundation, is a world-record-breaking campaign that brings together children and adults to read the same book on the same day, This year's book was "Otis," by Loren Long.

Herbert and Becker read the book out loud to children at Mountain View Elementary as part of the record attempt.
