Dr. Seuss Festival Teaches Parents Literacy Begins at Birth

Poster with quote about reading to a childHundreds of parents gathered at the Kauri Sue Hamilton School for a night of reading and other activities aimed at children from birth to 5-years-old.

It was a fun and interactive Dr. Seuss Literacy Festival organized by the Childhood Development Center, which serves more than 1,800 children in Salt Lake County. Parents were encouraged to start babies on the road to literacy at birth by reading to them.

Every family received a free book to take home and read with their children. High school  students were part of the evening as well, encouraging families to get excited about a life-long love of reading for their children.
