Youngsters prepare for week of reading adventures

“Read Across America” comes to Bowie Elementary this week.

Librarian Patricia Costello said the Peer Assistance Leadership Students from Bowie High School will read to the students during the morning of March 2 in the classrooms.

Everyone will have a paper “Cat in the Hat” stove pipe hat to wear. The Cat in the Hat himself may stop in.

Read Across America is an annual reading initiative by the National Educational Association to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss.
