Last week was Dr. Seuss’ birthday, and our local schools honored him by dressing up as their favorite character and reading his books. Some of the faculty and teachers at learning Bridge dressed up as The Lorax and Truffala trees. “UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” – The Lorax.

The National Education Association’s Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2—Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books. This year the White Pine County Library, along with the Learning Bridge Charter School, David E. Norman Elementary, Magic Carpet Preschool and Daycare, the Headstart Preschool and the preschool at the Ely Shoshone Tribe participate in the Dr. Seuss Week. Many kids and teachers, dressed up as their favorite Dr. Seuss character in addition to each day being a fun themed day made it a very interesting school week across White Pine, or as Dr. Seuss would say “from there to her and here to there funny things are everywhere.”
