Read Across America


In honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2, Parent-Child Home Program sites across the country took part in Read Across America, a national celebration of reading. Reading some great Dr. Seuss books, being Dr. Seuss characters, and doing Dr. Seuss themed art projects, PCHP families had lots of fun celebrating reading and one of America’s greatest children’s authors!

Here are some of our Seussians!
