Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2—Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Hammond and members of the Command Staff will be visiting Signal Centers, 109 N. Germantown Road, on Friday, March 2, at 9:45 a.m. to read to the children, encourage literacy and build positive relationships with our community’s children.
"Signal Centers Children’s Program will kick off the day with green eggs and ham (be sure to arrive at 9:30 a.m.) while dressed in pajamas, perfect attire to celebrate Dr.
Seuss and meet with Sheriff Hammond and company for Read Across America Day," officials said.
“Reading with infants, toddlers and preschoolers is the best way to launch children to have a lifelong love of reading,” said Signal Centers CEO Donna McConnico. “Our Signal family is so excited to have Sheriff Hammond and other officers support early literacy through their visit with the children.”
The children have been celebrating everything Dr. Seuss all week, including green day, silly socks day, stripes/polka dot day and hat day.
“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.” --- Dr. Seuss
