Reading Across America with Dr. Seuss!
Would you help kids take a look?
Would you like to read at school?
Would you think that it is cool?
Apologies to Dr. Seuss, who was the celebrity of the day on his birthday, March 2, but we had a great time on Read Across America Day! GranFran celebrated by reading Green Eggs and Ham to Mrs. Bethnee Durham's first grade class at Gardendale Elementary - how much fun was THAT! It was especially fun because GranFran's great-grandson, Parker (who is also my grandson, I must say, BTW!) is in the class. And what a great group of listeners they all were! ( Click here to find a lot more Dr. Seuss fun at Seussville.)
GranFran also read her Manners For Me book, which she wrote it in 1957 while teaching a Child Development class at Samford University. One of her students, Marie Smith Hogg, illustrated it, then it sat in a drawer for 55 years until it was published in 2013. But the retro feel still connected with Mrs. Durham's class!
Thanks for a great day, you guys!
