Read Across America

Posted: Wednesday, Mar 6th, 2013

At left, Janet Butler, Kings School librarian, dressed up as Cat in the Hat on Friday during the school’s annual assembly in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Butler read “There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Books” to the students during National Education Association’s annual Read Across America. Above, students and teachers at Kings School took a reader’s oath stating: “I promise to read each day and night. I know it’s the key to growing up right. I’ll read to myself, I’ll read to a crowd. It makes no difference if silent or loud. I’ll read at my desk, at home and at school, on my beanbag or bed, by the fire or pool. Each book that I read puts smarts in my head, cause brains grow more thoughts the more they are fed. So I take this oath to make reading my way of feeding my brain what it needs everyday.” Below, Kings teachers read a poem with meteorologist Mark Henderson (center) of 23 WIFR-TV.
