Read Across America Day Observed Across Atlanta

The students in Ms. Joycelyn Gore’s 2nd grade class at Continental Colony Elementary were wide-eyed and full of joy. I had the pleasure of being invited to read to them as part of National Reading Month, which kicked off today “Reading Across America Day”. The book of choice was “Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?” by Dr. Seuss. It’s the 20th anniversary of Read Across America Day, which celebrate’s Seuss’s birthday and the joys of reading.
