Read Across America

Did you know today is Read Across America Day? That's right. It's in recognition of Dr. Seuss's birthday.

I, along with other members of the local community, were invited to a local elementary school to read to students. I had a blast reading Hop on Pop to a group of first grade students. They loved the story, although I had the hardest time not getting tongue-tied with all the rhyming.

Each one of the students promised to go to their library and check out a Dr. Seuss book. So, follow the lead of these first graders and READ AMERICA!

I also had the opportunity to sign copies of Deliver Me. Don't worry, only teachers and adults over 18 were allowed to purchase the book. I'm not into corrupting the minds of the young.
