Read Across America Day — Wolfsnail


I celebrated Read Across America Day with my friends at Davis Magnet IB World School. In the photograph at the left, I am reading Wolfsnail: A Backyard Predator to Diane Setzer’s kindergarten class. As you can see, we are all wearing our Cat in the Hat hats. I first read the Dr. Seuss classic and then my book. This Read Across America Day, which is always celebrated on or near Theodor Seuss Geisel’s birthday, was special for me because the American Library Association named Wolfsnail a 2009 Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book.


Mississippi Public Broadcasting arts reporter Ron Brown recorded some of the reading and interviewed students and teachers for a report that will air Friday, March 6th, at 6:35 a.m. and 7:35 a.m. Tune in if you can. I hope all of you dedicate some time to read today with the children in your life. It makes a difference and it’s just plain fun — especially if you wear a funny hat.
