READ ACROSS AMERICA celebrates Dr. Seuss’ birthday every year and children’s book authors across the country visit schools to read to children. This year was a great even! Dodger great “Sweet Lou” Johnson, the Laker Girls, and Saltwater Taffy helped kick off the amazing event.
I was able to read to 3 different 5th Grade classrooms and then gave away a whopping 375 copies of Saltwater Taffy to every kid in the entire school. We are rapidly approaching giveaway copy #5,000!!!! How cool is that? 5000 kids energized about reading again? Here are some images from today’s visit:
Saltwater Taffy has been endorsed by 12 Teachers of the Year around the country and is an epic tale of adventure for the entire family. We are honored to be a part there this year and look forward to next years event!
