Read Across America
Every year Read 20 celebrates the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel (March 2, 1904 -September 24, 1991), most widely known for his popular children’s books written and illustrated under the pen name Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss was an American writer, poet, and cartoonist. He wrote under the name Dr. Theophrastus Seuss in college and later used Theo LeSieg.
This year during RAA Week ( February 27- March 3, 2017) Read 20 will be joining Catherine Bolden at St. Peters School , Rotary Reads at Woodmore Elementary School, and Jamie McConnico at Signal Centers, Avondale HeadStart and Baby University with read alouds from the collection of Dr. Seuss.
We are looking forward to meeting new friends and sharing the rhythm, rhyme and dearly-loved characters of Dr. Seuss. Watch for us in your school during the first week of March 2017. And don’t forget to read every day for at least 20 minutes!
