IN DAN MCDONALD’S third grade class at Dallesport Elementary, he said students had been reading Dr. Seuss books for weeks before dining on real green eggs and ham March 3 in celebration of Read Across America Day, observed on or near Dr. Seuss’ birthday (March 2). According to McDonald, it served as a fun-filled “pajama reading day” for students, before which they also had the opportunity to make Seuss-inspired striped hats in art class and had been encouraged to come to school wearing them, along with their comfiest pajamas to add to the air of festivity.
