GRAFTON, Mass. -- They read Seuss books here and there, they read Seuss books everywhere.

On March 1, the students at Millbury Street Elementary School celebrated Dr. Seuss's 109th birthday and Read Across America Day with guest readers appearing in classrooms with copies of "Horton Hears A Who," "The Lorax" and other Seuss classics. 

Town dignitaries, like selectmen John Carlson and Peter Adams, School Superintendent James Connors and Special Education Director Arnold Lundwall, visited different classrooms, read their Seuss book and reinforced the importance of reading every day.

The Read Across America program is conducted each year by the National Education Association on or close to Theodor Seuss Geisel's birthday. 

Later, the school cafeteria offered green eggs and ham.  There were no confirmed reports if the students liked them, Sam I Am.
