Once again, Read Across America was a blast!

I've come to love "Read Across America." There's something magical about everyone wearing silly hats in celebration of an author. There's something awesome about people all over the country coming together solely for the purpose of reading.

It's really special to see children excited about books, about community members coming to their schools to read to them. As many students with Stephanie Bemboom combo 1st and 2nd grade class put it: I love it when I'm read to out loud.

As many of you know, Read Across America was launched 18 years ago by the National Education Association. It's celebrated the first week of March, which coincides with the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, the famous Dr. Seuss.

It's an opportunity for people to read his beloved books, and that's what retired Ord Terrace teacher Carla Wright did when reading at her former school.

 Len Foster, president of the board of the Literacy Campaign for Monterey County, took part of the celebration.
