"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."
If you know who wrote that, you may know that it's his 108th birthday and to celebrate kids across the nation are reading!
Read Across America encourages students all over the country to open a book in honor of the late children's author Theodor Seuss Geisel, otherwise known as Dr. Seuss.
Over at Williamstown Elementary, community members, including WTAP's Jonathan Kennedy and Brittany Sweeney were invited to read aloud to kids in 1st through 6th grades.
Susan Grandick coordinated the event and says, "oh they love when the community members comes. They love seeing familiar faces. It makes their day more exciting and they like to just do something different."
"The students get really excited because they love reading and when people come in and share the love of reading with them," added Ruth patrick, co-coordinator.
Guest readers from Williamstown Bank, Hino, and local high school students also shared their favorite stories.
It doesn't have to be Dr. Seuss' birthday for you to volunteer to read to the students.
Community members are always invited to read a book in class any day of the week.
