Read Across America Guest readers, storybook favorites, Thing One and Thing Two ... But that is not all! Oh, no. That is not all.

The Cat in the Hat was back at Burnet Hill for the NEA's Read Across America celebration.

Across Livingston, elementary schools joined schools across America to promote reading. There were students in red-and-white stovepipe hats and the Dr. Seuss mop-headed duo, Thing One and Thing Two, to greet guest readers. But that is not all! Oh, no. That is not all .. It was all part of the annual #ReadAcrossAmerica and the tribute to Theodor Seuss Geisel. Teachers and media specialists helped make the special reading events come alive in the schools, dressing as the Cat in the Hat and their favorite book characters.
