Students at Tyndall Elementary School celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday as part of National Reading Across America Day.
Bay District School Board member Steve Moss read one of the classic children’s books, ‘The Cat in the Hat’ to second graders.
Not only did he read the book, but he gave away a variety of Dr. Seuss books to the entire class. Moss says reading is critical in helping students do better in school.
“A lot of parents will ask me as a school board member, what can I do to help my child to do better in school and to learn? I tell them all the same thing. Foster in them a love for reading in them as early as possible because that reading is the foundation that everything is built upon,” said Moss.
Moss says the book give-away was a surprise for students.
