MOSS POINT, Miss. (AP) - Children at Kreole Elementary School in Moss Point got the perfect gift for the upcoming summer months. It was the gift of reading.

The newly formed Moss Point Foundation for Academic Excellence raised money to buy 1,000 books to give to every second grader at the school.

WLOX-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Jp2NrL ) foundation officials say that reading at home builds a foundation for future success.

In addition to the book donation, the foundation brought in several guest readers Tuesday to sit down and spend an hour with the students. Those speakers included state Rep. Jeramey Anderson and Jackson County Supervisor Melton Harris. Both said it was an honor and a privilege to participate in the event.
