Read Across America Day

The Wyoming Education Association will continue with the theme of Dr. Seuss for the rest of the school year as they'll travel to different schools around the state to read and act out The Cat in the Hat.

Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - Dr. Seuss would have turned 110 yesterday and to celebrate the occasion the National Education Association sponsored Read Across America Day today. Governor Matt Mead and some local Cheyenne students celebrated at the capital with a proclamation from the governor declaring today Read Across America Day in Wyoming.

The students were treated to a reading of the First Ladies book, First Wyoming by Carol Mead and even the governor got in on the fun with his own rhyme greeting the students by saying, "Hi, my name is Matt, and I like my hat" as he was wearing the classic red and white Dr. Seuss hat.

Millions of kids across the United States gathered today to read and to promote literacy across the country. First Lady Carol Mead said that reading with your kids is one of the most important things you can do as a parent. As Dr. Seuss said, "The more that you read, the more things you'll know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."
