Dr. Seuss & Green Eggs and Ham

Today is Dr. Seuss’ 108th birthday. The famous children’s author would be proud that more than twenty years after his death, his books are as popular as ever. In Topeka Public Schools and throughout the nation today, children were read Dr. Seuss books on the National Education Association’s Read Across America Day.

At Avondale East Elementary Schools, members of the community stopped by to read a Dr. Seuss book to students. The readers included a police officer, a banker and a former principal at Avondale East. The day began as it should on Dr. Seuss’ birthday with green eggs and ham on the breakfast menu.
