The event's state sponsor was the Georgia Association of Educators.

Burgandee Porter, a junior at Ontario High School, visited the school to earn some National Honor Society hours while reading to elementary students.

"I guess now I have to bring that book from home and put it in my class library", teacher Pam Patrick said. "Cleaning that up would take all night".

"Yes, I am Cat in the Hat", Shaw laughed.

Students filled in each top hat tier with a different rhyme to "cat" before they donned their tangible literary creations.

Coronella said of the event. "They can challenge themselves with games like Add & Estimate with One Fish, Two Fish and other activities on the library's SmartBoard".

"Thing 2 is down the hall", Hamby said. He also reacted to his father's wish that his son get a doctorate.

Come help celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday at the Huron Public Library.

"That is our goal for them: to become good readers and develop a life-long habit", Brainard said. A poster with a map of Ohio college read "Oh The Places You'll Go" and asked students to think about where they would like to go.

"He repeats a lot of things", Clifford said of Seuss. "Some got seconds, thirds and even fourths".

"Reading to the kids helps the development of the brain", Flippin said. Kids can get a taste of green eggs and ham, all while listening to rhymes like a poetry slam.

She said the main focus at Temple Elementary School for the students is literacy.

All schools in the Conway School District are participating in the activities this week.

It's been a busy couple of days for students and staff of Lee Elementary School in the celebration of the school's inaugural "Read Across America Week". Start reading a little bit at the time.

A week of events the school employed, but it was insane hair day the fifth-grader Tess Molling most enjoyed.

Almost 45 minutes into the school day, more than 15 first-graders piled onto the classroom's map-decorated carpet and sat down to listen to Dr. Seuss' "The Cat in the Hat".

Stark students Ny'Asia Akins, a first-grader, and Saniyah Smith, a fourth-grader, both correctly guessed that there were 99 fish in a "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" fishbowl, winning a bag of prizes each.

Geisel's birthday, March 2, has been adopted as the annual date for National Read Across America Day, an initiative on reading created by the National Education Association.
