Guest readers, other events make books fun
“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild to pick up a book and read, to a child,” said Dr. Seuss in a famous quote.
In celebration of Read Across America Week and Dr. Seuss’ birthday, area schools had fun dress-up days and special events throughout the week of Feb. 28 through March 4.
A big part of the excitement at Wilson Early Childhood Development Center was guest readers who came to read to the kids throughout the week. Superintendent Nick Highsmith kicked the week off by reading "Hop on Pop” to some of Miami’s littlest Wardogs.
Probably the highlight of the week at Wilson was some special guest readers on Tuesday who surprised the students by bringing a fire truck and ambulance to the school for the kids to climb on and check out close-up. Later, Firefighter/Driver/EMT Kade Witten, with some help from the FirePup, read a book to the enthralled bunch of youngsters. Originally appeared in the March 4, 2022 issue of the Miami News-Record
