Eau Claire – Today, U.S. Rep. Ron Kind read to 2nd grade students at Longfellow Elementary School for Read Across America Day. Read Across America is an annual reading motivation program that gives students, teachers and families reading-themed resources and activities, and celebrates author Dr. Seuss’s birthday.
“An early love of reading is the first step to success for our students,” said Rep. Ron Kind. “I’ll always cherish the memories Tawni and I made reading to our boys when they were young, and hope the kids and teachers celebrating “Read Across America” day in central and western Wisconsin have as much fun as I had reading today.”
