The National Education Association’s celebration Read Across America has been an annual event since 1998. What better day to revel in reading than to honor cherished children’s author Dr. Seuss? His March 2 birthday was chosen to spread the excitement of reading.

On this national celebration of the wonder and importance of reading, Niwot Rotarians, known for bringing about positive changes in the community, read stacks of Dr. Seuss’s beloved stories aloud to every grade in Niwot Elementary School.

This was the group’s sixth year of reading “One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish…” and watching smiles come over the childrens’ faces and with that, their mission to spark the love of reading was accomplished.
