Read Across America Day is celebrated with rhyming books by Dr Seuss. So many to chose from, including Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose.
Schools around the nation take part in this celebration. Teachers use the author's birthday to encourage kids to read. They share stories by a man who wrote 54 books, to take the lead.
I made my voice boom yesterday when I visited a classroom. The Kindergarteners sat on a reading mat. As I told the story of The Cat in the Hat.
Danbury Police Officers took time to read to students at City schools yesterday.
The Brookfield Police Department also took part in Read Across America Day. Police Chief Purcell was joined by Brookfield First Selectman Steve Dunn and nearly a half dozen others who volunteered to read to children at the Brookfield Public Library.
