(Victorville)– Community members are invited to join in the City of Victorville’s story time video celebration of Dr. Seuss on Read Across America Day, March 2. To help foster the joy of reading in local youth, the City will be sharing story time videos of Mayor Debra Jones and City staff reading classic Dr. Seuss books on its Instagram and Facebook sites throughout the day.
The celebration will begin at 11 a.m. on March 2 with a story time video of Because a Little Bug Went Ka-CHOO. Additional videos will be posted at 1 p.m., 3 p.m., 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.
“Dr. Seuss was an exceptional storyteller, and we look forward to celebrating his birthday with our community,” said Victorville Mayor, Debra Jones. “We hope that his fun, zany stories will inspire local children to fall in love with reading.”
Children and their families are also invited to participate in a series of online quizzes and games at vv.city/drseuss for opportunities to win Dr. Seuss-themed prizes. Each story time video will contain a code that can be entered for points towards the prize drawing. The contest will close on March 8.
