NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– Across America today millions of people will share a good book for Dr. Seuss’ birthday.

New Haven students will spend the morning celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday with a day of reading. More than 75 community volunteers, firefighters, police officers and the mayor of New Haven will pick out a good book and read with elementary students at three schools in New Haven. Those are the 21st Century Communications Magnet School, Lincoln Bassett and Clinton Avenue.

The Read Across America event encourages children to keep reading and learning. New Haven Mayor Toni Harp says reading is fundamental to all of the self-teaching that we have to do.

Read Across America expects more than 45 million readers throughout the country both young and old to pick up a book and read.
