LYNN — A trail of red and white hats, taped to the floor, Led the Ford School visitors to the elevator door. From there they went up, those hats red and white, To a room that held a wondrous sight:
A celebration was on, as a matter of course, For Dr. Seuss, reading and Dr. Miriam Morse.
"It's a celebration of Literacy Day," said Ford School Librarian Anne Marie Donnelly. "We're re-dedicating the library, we've invited 24 people to come and read to our classes, and in the afternoon we will celebrate with a school wide story ... 'Green Eggs and Ham.'
Nationally, March 1 is known as Read Across America Day, celebrated on Dr. Seuss' birthday since 1998. Its aim is to promote reading, motivation and awareness. This is the first year the school has joined in the fun that Donnelly can remember.
"I think it's important to show them that reading and literacy can be and is fun," she said.
"My goal is to encourage a love of reading. Principal Dr. Claire Crane's purpose is to get a book in the hand of every child in the school. It's why we have a library."
