Yesterday, students across the United States celebrated Read Across America Day. Watch this excellent video of blind students reading Braille.
Here in Nevada, we make the celebration all week and call it Nevada Reading Week. Friday, I get the opportunity to read to the Kindergarten students at my daughter’s school, in Braille of course!
Today, Marley and the rest of the kids at her school dressed up in red, white, and black in honor of the beloved Dr. Seuss.
Happy birthday Dr. Seuss! In honor of your great works, I spent the day in the Nevada Legislative Committee on Education meeting educating our state assembly members and state senators about the need for blind and visually impaired children to have access to literacy through Braille.
All week long we’ll be reading from our collection of Dr. Seuss books. I’m sad to say I don’t own my favorite book, “Oh the Places You’ll Go.”
What’s your favorite Dr. Seuss book?
As I wrap up my night I leave you with this my favorite Dr. Seuss quote, which actually happens to hang up on the shower curtain in the hall bathroom.
“Today, you are you. That is truer than true. There is no one alive, more you-er than you.”
So fun! I love the video. My favorite Dr. Seuss book is The 500 Hats of Bartholemew Cubbins. I’m not sure if it’s available in Braille, but if it is, you should check it out. It’s an older book for older kids, but really a nail-biter!
