WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – National Education Association’s “Read Across America Day” is being celebrated in classrooms countrywide, Friday.

They are also celebrating the life of perhaps the most esteemed children’s writer; Dr. Seuss would have turned 108.

Theodor Seuss Geisel, born in 1904, made more than 60 children’s books before his death in 1991, many of which have been adapted into films and animated films (How The Grinch Stole Christmas).

Teachers and special guests are reading one of Dr. Seuss’ most poplular works to children across the country today, including Heather Hills Elementary School, where Bowie’s Mayor Frederick Robinson paid a visit.

WNEW’s George Mesthos has more on their celebration...
