This week has been filled with themes from Dr. Seuss books in Floyd County elementary schools with green eggs and ham for the breakfast, children wearing "silly" socks, faculty and students dressing as twins, and lots of kids dressed like the Cat in the Hat.  It was all to celebrate the birthday of author Dr. Seuss and the many hours of joy his work has brought to children.  

Teens from Kelly Carver's world literature class at Pepperell High School did not miss out on the celebration as they walked next door to Pepperell Primary School to join the younger Dragons in the fun. The high school students served as role models for reading and activity leaders for the children from Pepperell Primary kindergarten classes. 

"There was much reading, discussing, creating, and laughing as the students from the two schools worked together," commented Carver. "It was exactly the kind of birthday celebration Dr. Seuss would have wanted."

The birthday celebration is part of Read Across America week celebrated by schools and school children each year.  Read Across America was started by the National Education Association (NEA) as an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss.
