One Book, Two Book, Red Book, Blue Book: Dr. Seuss Celebrated Locally
Wednesday, March 2, 2016 8:01 PM EST
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go," said Dr. Seuss.
Students from Woodrow Wilson Elementary School in Binghamton read Dr. Seuss on what would be his 112th birthday Wednesday. It was part of National Read Across America Day.
Students visited with "The Cat in the Hat." They read with parents, high school students, and city officials.
Read Across America is a year-round program focused on motivating children to read.
"You're learning new things and words that you can tell other people," said 3rd Grader, Vki Smith.
"They're starting to really like the sound of words and language and that is the best gift that Dr. Seuss can give us," said Linda Oryhon, 3rd Grade Consultant Teacher.
Oryhon said the goal is to have students read at least 45 minutes every day and 100 books by the end of the marking period.
