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 email@example.com to sign up! If you’re feeling a little shy, you can pair up with a friend to read.
