School 16 in Troy celebrating birthday of Dr. Seuss during “Read Across America Day”

TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The 113th birthday of Dr. Suess is also shared by Read Across America Day.

It’s a day solely meant to encourage children and their parents to read together, and to it regularly. Combining the two occasions is as simple as cooking breakfast, it’s only right to serve up Green Eggs and Ham. Do you like them, Sam I Am?

Senator Neil Breslin is just one of the guest readers.

Some of the RPI hockey team came by and even some parents stayed and cracked open some of these children’s book classics.

“This is the best part of the job, reading to young kids and watching the smiles on the faces. I’ll float through the rest of the day, nothing can get me annoyed on this day of Dr. Suess,” Senator Neil Breslin said.

The iconic striped hat and Dr. Suess’ characters were plastered all over the building.

The work starts at school but continues at home, parents say the hard work is starting to pay off for some of their young scholars.
