Read across America is a nationwide celebration of reading that happens annually on the birthday of one of the most beloved children’s authors of all times – Dr. Seuss.
This year, the team at Point & Click and Fox Designs decided to go as a group to Desert View Elementary (a local elementary school) and read to a classroom of children. We teamed up in pairs and went to a variety of different grade levels reading books ranging from Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss, to a biography of Albert Einstein. The kids had a great time listening and we had a fantastic time reading to them!
Before the event we got a list of how many children were in each class we were reading to and made a stop at Bookmans where we purchased a plethora of children’s books. When we were finished reading to the children and answering questions we made sure that every child got to pick a book to bring home with them. In our eyes, it seemed a small gesture, but watching the eyes of the children receiving them light up in joy, it was profoundly moving.
