Kade Peterson, a member of Brighton High School's student government, left, reads Dr. Seuss' “Wacky Wednesday” to Roman Trujillo and Branic Berg at Bella Vista Elementary School in Cottonwood Heights on Wednesday. The event was held in honor of what would have been Dr. Seuss’ 112th birthday and the National Education Association’s Read Across America Day. Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, wrote and illustrated several of the most popular children's books of all time. He wrote such classics as “If I Ran the Zoo,” “Horton Hears a Who!” “If I Ran the Circus,” “The Cat in the Hat,” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” and “Green Eggs and Ham.” He was born March 2, 1904, in Springfield, Massachusetts.
