Get ready to grab your hat and read with The Cat in the Hat for the 20th annual Read Across America Day on Thursday March 2nd.
The Seussical celebration at Mt. Bethel will inspire our kids to grab a book and read!
In true Seussical fashion, your kids can wear their craziest hat and socks on Read Across America Day March 2nd! Or dress up as their favorite Dr. Seuss character.
Take a fun on-line trivia game and show us just how much you know about Dr. Seuss's books! You may answer the trivia between now until 9pm the evening of March 1st. Participants will earn a chance to win a 3D bookmark!
On March 2nd, kids will have a chance to meet Dr. Seuss, Thing 1 and Thing 2 and find hidden Cats in the Hats for prizes as well.
$5 Book Fairy Gift card donations are converted into "book fairy bucks" so that a well deserving student in need can pick and purchase books from their Book Fair. MBES PTA will purchase the cards from your donations.
