The Cat in the Hat is back again and so is Read Across America. Read Across America, celebrated on Dr.Seuss’s birthday, is a nationwide event to recognize the importance of reading in the lives of young children. For many of us, Dr.Seuss’s books played a huge role in our literacy development. While I personally don’t remember reading Seuss as a child, its characters have popped in and out throughout my entire life.
At Wheelock, we’re holding the event a little early this year on Monday, February 27, at the Campus Center. This will be our 8th annual celebration! Please stop by and join us at any or all of our events:
10:30am – 11:30am: Story hour in the Wolf Room:
Volunteer to read a book to kids from a local preschool. We will have both seuss and non-seuss selections. We’re still looking for volunteers. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up! If you’re feeling a little shy, you can pair up with a friend to read.
10am-12pm: Photo Booth:
Take some wacky seusstastical photos to share with friends. #wheeread #readacrossamerica
All-Day Seuss Menu:
Dining services will be serving items inspired by dr. Seuss stories. Dr. Seuss coloring pages will be available during lunch.
Book Drive for the Mattahunt Elementary School
Please bring in new or like new children’s books for 3rd-4th grade level readers to donate during our story hour. Donation boxes will also be available the entire month of march. If you bring in a book, you’ll get a Seuss goody bag. Sponsored by the Community Service and Civic Engagement Advisory Council.
