Turnagain Elementary Celebrates Dr. Seuss
ANCHORAGE, Ak-- From alaska to Florida people did say. Have you read a book today? It's a day to celebrate the legend dr. seuss in Read Across America Day.
"So as part of Dr. Suess's birthday we like to help kids recognized how important reading is there in their life as part of our community we like to go and volunteer and help out at elementary schools.
In order to honor the legend properly the West High School students first needed to take lessons.
"We sat with our librarian and she taught us how to interact with the kids and in what voice to read to the kids, Peterson."
The day also stresses the importance reading has on children's futures.
"I think one of the biggest things is showing that reading can be fun that it's not work but that its fun. the more the students enjoy reading the better it gets. the more you read the more you succeed, Laura Guest, Turnagain Librarian."
From book recitations, to making hats, and creating their own rhymes students enjoyed a full day of Seuss education.
