My daughter’s question of the day — Monday is Read Across America Day and her class is taking sleeping bags, pillows, stuffed animals and, yes, books to school. The plans are, they will spend a good part of the day curled up with their books.
Read Across America celebrates Dr. Seuss’ birthday and schools observe this in various ways — some have adults come into the classroom to read, older kids might have an all-day reading event like this one.
But what happens when Read Across America is snowed out? Does she still take her sleeping bag and book to school on Tuesday or will it be moved to another day of the week? Anyone know?
She’s already miffed at Mother Nature for messing up Many Thanksgivings (moved from December to January due to snow); I don’t think she’ll feel forgiving if she misses out on her special reading day!
And yes, she’ll read at home if she’s snowed in. She can even stay in her sleeping bag all day if she wants to. But it just won’t be the same…
