Every year, we celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss with guest readers reading his words in every classroom in our school. This year, we had enough readers to send 2 guests to every class. Many brought their own books, but we also had a big collection to choose from in the library.
We thank so many members of our Barrow and local community for coming into our school to share stories with kids. It’s important to see people sharing the power of words at every grade level. Days like these remind us that you are never too old to enjoy a great picture book, have fun with words, and laugh out loud with friends when you get all tongue-tied.
Some of our readers this year came from UGA’s Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. This was the fraternity that Dr. Seuss was a member of at Dartmouth.
In addition to being readers, the fraternity brothers brought us some Elephant and Piggie books to add to our collection. Each copy they donated was a Geisel Honor Book. What a great way to honor Seuss and support literacy. Thank you!
In addition to readers and having lots of Seuss books available to kids, I unboxed our latest book order from Bound to Stay Bound. It was packed with graphic novels and many other fantastic books. It didn’t take long for our ravenous readers to check out pretty much every graphic novel I ordered. Some kids even returned a 2nd time to check out more. Happy Read Across America!
