“The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Dr. Seuss got it right. When you read, every day can be an adventure!

Early literacy experiences are critical to healthy brain development. With this in mind, Needham Elementary School is hosting a “Reading Celebration” this week. Exciting new things are happening on campus each day. From being featured on Good Day Sacramento to classroom visits by volunteers who read their favorite books, there is a lot to look forward to each day.

I had the pleasure of participating by reading one of my favorites by Dr. Seuss, “A Big Ball of String”, to first grade students in Ms. Jaymont’s class. Watching the children, eyes wide with anticipation as each page turned, was definitely the highlight of my day!

Join Needham in their effort to excite children about reading! Take the time and read to someone today!
