Fox 28 personalities take part in Read Across America Day


Posted by Traci Capellman

Our own Elishah Oesch and Steve DuVal took off for Concord East Side Elementary after work Tuesday morning to read their favorite Dr. Suess Books to the 1st graders.

Erin Allender's class was excited about their guests and also talked about why they love Dr. Suess books.

Their teacher Erin Allender says, "This is really cool. First of all, just because this is somebody different reading to them, but when they have somebody else read to them. It's really important to involve the community in their education."

Student, 7-year-old Samantha Boal says, "He always makes up new words for people and he always rhymes."

Rebecca Spagaro, another first grader says, "They rhyme and they're just really good books. They are interesting and I just like them."

Dr. Suess, whose real name was Theodore Geisel, died in 1991.
