Dr. Seuss Would Say Reading's Here to Stay

Students in Garden Grove and throughout the county spent Dr. Seuss' birthday Monday doing something the author would have appreciated--reading.

As part of the annual Read Across America event, the National Education Assn., along with several other literacy, education and community groups, sponsored activities to honor the late author Theodor Seuss Geisel and encourage literacy.

Local schools sponsored pajama parties, poetry readings and author's days to recognize the annual event.

Residents from around the county traveled to local schools to hold special readings for children.

Event organizers said the goal of the Read Across America project was to have a book in the hand of every child in the country for Dr. Seuss' birthday.
