Thousands of elementary and middle school kids got a treat this morning. Former First Lady Barbara Bush stopped by the George Bush Presidential Library to do some reading.

Schools from all over the state watched along through video conference. Mrs. Bush read from a book that shared stories about all of the presidents, including the current president.

Mrs. Bush also answered questions from the students both in attendance and across the state. One student asked what was the most interesting place the she ever visited as First Lady?

"We went to China, the People's Republic of China where we saw the tombs and those wonderful statues that are traveling. I also went to Petra, wonderful place in Jordan. We went to such places that were so exciting and as a child I never left the United States," answered Mrs. Bush.

The event was a part of the Bush Library's Reading Discovery Distance Learning Program.
