- Updated

Just two weeks into the 2014 Reading Across Missouri campaign, 62 Missouri newspapers and 56 newspapers from 25 other states have downloaded “Lily’s Story,” an 8-chapter serialized story about a search and rescue dog from Joplin.

This story is available for a limited time at no cost to your newspaper.

Readers of all ages will enjoy this true story of a Weimaraner named Lily. Lily survives a mysterious illness with the help of veterinarians and her owner, Tara, by her side. Lily’s recovery is a miracle, but her challenges are far from over. A month later, Joplin is hit by a massive tornado! The search and rescue dog’s bravery and resilience are put to the test as she is called upon to help put her city back together, piece by piece.

Newspapers have access to eight ready-to-publish chapter features, a promotional ad, story and photos about the dog, as well as a companion teacher guide. The files all are available in PDF format. Everything EXCEPT the chapter features may be posted on your website.

To download the files, visit www.mo-nie.com and used download code: readmo14.
