The Kids Get a Good Dose of Books

If the kids are tangled in rhyme or singing the praises of green eggs and ham, blame the doctor.

Dr. Seuss is big at this time of year. The Read Across America campaign is sweeping the nation with a message for kids to reach for the books.

Guest readers have been dropping by elementary schools around the metro to share their love of the well-told story.

We listened in as Papillion-La Vista High School wrestlers read to students at G. Stanley Hall.

Mike Conley told Mrs. Bowman’s second-graders, "I'd like to say a couple things about the importance of reading. You're going to need this when you get into high school and for English. It will help you lot. So just keep on reading."
