Theodore Seuss Geisel, otherwise known as the beloved Dr. Seuss, made reading fun for millions of children around the world. Lake Benton Elementary School celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday by holding “Dress as your favorite book character day.” Lake Benton community leaders also partnered with the school, reading to the classes. The events took place last Friday, March 2.
Several students, teachers, and staff dressed as book characters for the day. Laura Ingalls Wilder, Hogwarts students, the Grinch, and the Cat in the Hat were all seen in the school. Everyone enjoyed celebrating reading in a fun way.
