Everyone has a favorite Dr. Seuss book, even our superintendent, Dr. Joanne Horton.
So when Raymond L. Young planned the kick off for "Read Across America," we asked one of the district's busiest people....Dr. Joanne Horton, if she would share her Seuss favorite!

She met with kindergarten and first graders in the auditorium to share HORTON HATCHES THE EGG. As the superintendent read the book, students were able to follow along with a powerpoint featuring the pictures from the story.

Of course, this book does sport Dr. Horton's name, but the reason she selected it was because of the message of the story. As shared by a first grader during a follow up writing activity, Horton, the main character, never gives up in his mission to sit on the egg, even through the worst of times. He follows through with his mission. This is a fine book for children and adults to read and remember.

Thank you, Dr. Horton for taking the time to share this book and important lesson. May we all strive to be like Horton!
