Theodor Geisel would have been 115 years old on March 2.
He’s better known as Dr. Seuss, the beloved author and illustrator to more than 60 children’s books including ‘The Cat in the Hat,’ ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas,’ ‘Horton Hears a Who,’ and ‘Green Eggs and Ham.’
Read Across America is synonymous with Dr. Seuss’ birthday, which was and will be celebrated at various schools throughout the area.
Stella Brockman Elementary School celebrated Dr. Seuss with green eggs and ham compliments of Manteca Unified’s Nutrition Services being served to kindergarten- through- second- grade students on Friday.
“They all had a green eggs and ham breakfast with a rendition of the popular story acted out by kindergarten teachers, Mr. (Andy) Andersen and Mrs. (Kristina) Hansen,” Principal Candace Espinola said.
She added that guest readers consisted of Sierra High Principal Steve Clark and representatives from the nearby Save Mart Supermaret.
Read Across America was created by the National Education Association in 1997 as an initiative on reading.
More local Dr. Seuss celebrations are planned for this week.
