OSSINING, NY (WCBS 880) - Five-year-old Jordan Brown likes to play in the snow and play with his friends, but he also likes to read – a lot!

WCBS 880’s Catherine Cioffi reports

The kindergartener at the Park School in Ossining is being honored for reading 1,000 books.

WCBS 880 reporter Catherine Cioffi asked, “How did you read so many?”

Brown answered, “My mom.”

He showed off his favorite book – “Zen Ties.”

Cioffi asked, “What do you like about this book?”

Brown answered, “Skateboarding.”

Brown’s teacher, Mariela McDonough, says he’s a special little boy.

“Jordan reads both in English and in Spanish. Story books take him to different worlds in two languages,” says McDonough.
