Read Across America: Inspiring Children to Read

Schools, community members encourage students to read with a day dedicated to storytelling.

For Dr. Seuss, reading was about fun and bringing stories to life. That’s why Glendora community members and schools celebrated with a day of lively storytelling to inspire children’s love for reading.

March 2, Dr. Seuss’ birthday, has been set aside by educators and book publishers as a day to urge adults to take time out of their day to read to a child.

At l, 16 community members read children’s classics to students. At, kindergarten students not only read Dr. Seuss' classic Green Eggs and Ham, but tried some themselves.

“Every Dr. Seuss Day, you can start a family tradition, but it’s a great way to just spend time together,” said Erin Villaverde, Washinginton Elementary School principal.
