It was a Seuss-tastic celebration at Crucifixion Elementary school in La Crescent.on Thursday. Guest reader Peter Peterslie continued what has become an annual tradition at the school; honoring children's author Dr. Seuss with fun readings of the author's favorite works.
Along with enjoying such favorites as Green Eggs and Ham, students get a quick history of the famed writer born one Theodor Seuss Geisel on March 2nd, 1904.
"I really like the Lorax," said a 5th grader named Mady. "The books are all fun to read and it's fun to look at the drawings, just how creative they are."
The students also found out that over the course of his writing career, Seuss wrote over 60 books for children. And his very first book?
And To Think That I Saw it On Mulberry Street, published in 1937.
