Happy Day for Kids!! Posted By Vivian Wilhoite

Wow! this has been a very exciting week celebrating "Dr. Suess's Birthday and Read Across America" week. As some of you may know, the Metro Council introduced a Resolution in recognition of this week as it kicked off on Monday, March 3 at the Adventure Science Museum sponsored by the Metropolitan Nashville Education Association and the Tennessee Education Association. Clint Black, Grammy award Country Music Artist read to the children and did a little sing along. It was really fun! A great time was had by all. "Ozzie", the Sounds Mascot and I journeyed to Lakeview Elementary Design Center and Una Elementary School to read to our favorite Dr.Seuss books them today. They were so happy to see us walk in the door of their classrooms. All for a good cause to strengthen the importance of reading. Reading to children is the best light anyone can find. Volunteer to read to children at the schools not just this week but every day.
