It was all about Green Eggs and Ham and a lot of Dr. Seuss rhymes for Read Across America day in Idaho on Friday. The National Education Association created Read Across America 21 years ago to celebrate reading.
Read Across America Day is celebrated every year on March 2 in honor of the birthday of author Theodore Geisel, also known as Dr. Seuss. The day is focused on encouraging families to read together.
Check out the photos below of students, teachers and elected officials participating in the reading event.
