Fayetteville Superintendent Brings Dr. Seuss to Life for Young Students


Dr. Suess’ stories came alive for Fayetteville students as part of Read Across America Day.

It’s typically held on March 2 — Dr. Seuss’ birthday — and has been celebrated around the country since 1997.

Fayetteville Public Schools Superintendent Dr. John L. Colbert on Friday read a Dr. Seuss classic, “Green Eggs and Ham,” to local students.

“We tried to stress to kids that, ‘Hey, you can bring a book to life by acting it out,’ so we wanted them to see how that book could really feel if they were reading it themselves,” Colbert said. 

The superintendent read to kids at Washington, Owl Creek, Holcomb and Leverett elementary schools.
