On Thursday, March 2nd, Books in Homes locations celebrated Read Across America Day to honor Dr. Seuss's birthday. In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, William D. Kelley Elementary School celebrated literacy through Dr. Seuss-themed "Read Across Kelley" Day. In the morning, students gathered for a school-wide assembly to enjoy a read aloud by staff members and musical performances by their peers. At the end of the day, students were able to choose books to take home. In Newark, New Jersey, preschoolers at First Avenue School enjoyed a morning book giveaway with books delivered by The Cat in the Hat!
Books in Homes thanks W.D. Kelley and First Avenue School for hosting these wonderful celebrations for their students!
