Celebrating Dr. Seuss

The National Education Association is building a nation of readers through its signature program, NEA’s Read Across America. Now in its 20th year, this year-round program focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources. Read Across America visited Whittier International on March 2nd to read Green Eggs and Ham  and celebrate the author’s birthday with the kindergarten grade. What better way to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s legacy than to read and use your imagination?
