As Dr. Seuss once said, “Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained, and delighted.” That is exactly what happened at elementary schools throughout the Cobb County School District during the annual Read Across Cobb celebrations.
From there to here, from here to there, there were readers everywhere. They came in suits and boots. They wore big red hats as students scooted up close on mats.
If they looked fast, they may have seen Thing 1 and Thing 2 walk past.
“But that is not all. Oh no. That is not all!” “They had a lots of good fun that is funny.”
The guest readers came from inside and outside of Cobb. Cobb Schools Superintendent Chris Ragsdale and State Superintendent Richard Woods joined the entourage of readers that flooded Cobb Schools as part of Read Across Cobb. There were readers from the School Board, central office, and from throughout the community.
Students smiled, laughed, and giggled as they listened to books of all shapes and sizes.
Why did the guest readers come from there to here, and here to there? Because, they know Dr. Seuss’s quote still rings true, “The more that you read the more things you will know. The more that you learn the more places you’ll go.”
