Read Across America Day


Read Across America Day   
Today is Read Across America day at our school. We are happy to celebrate this wonderful day to remember the author Theodor Seuss Geisel who used the pen name Dr. Seuss to write books for children of all ages. At our school to celebrate we had readers come to share their favorite book by Dr. Seuss. We were expecting Officer Joseph and instead we got  Ms. Gonzalez. She read the book In a People House. We thought that was going to be it. Then the phone rang and we got a message that our reader was on his way. When he entered the door  we greeted him and he said he was not Officer Joseph, he was Officer Segovia from the Wilshire police Station.

Some Classtopians volunteered to help him read the story The Cat In The Hat. We were lucky to have two readers read to us. After we were done with the story we asked a lot of questions about the police department, then we talked about why we were afraid of the police. By the end of the morning he had to go and we felt a whole lot better about police officers.


Now to talk about  Dr. Seuss. He was born on March 2, 1904. Dr. Seuss was an author. His first book published was And to Think I saw It On Mulberry Street in 1937. His most famous book that he ever wrote was The Cat in the Hat. Another one of his most recommended books is the book The Lorax. We did a foot vote and How The Grinch Stole Christmas had 13 votes. The Lorax had 9 votes. Horton Hears a Who got 4 votes. And Luisangel was the only one who chose The Cat In The Hat. These books are fun to read for big and little kids, and for the parents who have to read them to their children.  

In Classtopia today we remember Dr. Seuss and his wonderful contribution. Every Classtopian has read a book by this very famous author.  We recommend you read a book today by Dr. Seuss or by any of your favorite authors.


We remember a quote by Einstein that says’’ Logic will get  you from an A to a B. Imagination will take you everywhere’’.
Let us continue the celebration of  this big and important day by reading.


Below are Classtopians and their favorite books by Dr. Seuss.
