Albion students celebrate Read Across America

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
This line from Dr. Seuss’ I Can Read With My Eyes Shut! might spark some nostalgia for readers who grew up scanning the pages of this story and other classics from the famous author and cartoonist.
It’s a fact that Dr. Seuss left many legacies behind, including a special celebration that schools still take part in today.
This celebration, otherwise known as National Read Across America Day, is an observance in the United States held on the school day closest to March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss.
Read Across America is an initiative on reading created by the National Education Association that began in 1997
Both Boone Central and St. Michael’s schools are celebrating this week with special themed activities and events.
