In honor of Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’ birthday, New Horizon Academy in Andover collected 125 books for the organization Reach Out and Read.
To celebrate its accomplishment, the center hosted a special party featuring a lunch of green eggs and ham plus a surprise guest, The Cat In The Hat, who read his favorite book to the children. A representative from Reach Out and Read also stopped by the center to offer congratulations.
The day’s activities also include a “most green” contest, art projects, plenty of story readings and more.
Read Across America Day, sponsored by the National Education Association, is held each year to encourage a love of reading and books in young children. More information can be found at http://www.nea.org/grants/886.htm.
New Horizon Academy is located at 13130 Riverdale Drive.
