Would you like to see Mayor Rahm Emanuel jump in the river? Then you'd better get reading, kids of Chicago.

Emanuel's office announced ahead of the holiday last week that both he and Chicago Bears star Israel Idonije will jump into Lake Michigan as part of the Chicago Polar Plunge so long as the city's children read at least 2 million books over the summer by participating in the "Rahm's Readers" program.

"It gives new meaning to the phrase 'reading is cool,'" the mayor said in a statement announcing the challenge.

Chicago Public Library Commissioner Brian Bannon will also be making the jump should the city's children succeed in reading 500,000 more books than the 1.5 million they did last year.

The Chicago Polar Plunge, a benefit for the Special Olympics, will be held on March 2, 2014. "Rahm's Readers" continues through August 10.
