    "Read Across America Day" In LB: Councilwoman Schipske, Fire Chief Ellis + 27 Firefighters Reading To Dr. Seuss-Hatted Kids At Henry Elementary

    (March 5, 2007) -- Students at ELB's Partrick Henry Elementary School donned Cat in the Hat hats and joined in reading books by the late Dr. Seuss on March 2 (his 103rd birthday) as part of "Read Across America Day."

    The kidlets were assisted by guest-readers LB Fire Chief Dave Ellis (accompanied by 27 LB Firefighters) and 5th district Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske.

    The Councilwoman and Firefighters headed to classrooms where they read a book donated by the Teachers Association of Long Beach.

    As we've previously reported, Councilwoman Schipske is TALB's General Counsel and yes, as we also note on this page, she emailed these photos to us.

    Fire Chief Dave Ellis makes his way through this book...more enjoyable than a City Council report.

    Later that day on her internet blog, Councilwoman Schipske wrote:

    Learning to read is one of the most important things a child will ever learn to do. Celebrating reading through different events is a fun way to introduce children to the world of books, words and reading. Mastering basic reading skills helps motivate children to learn. The more children read, the better they read. And the more they read outside of school, the better they do in school. Continued exposure to reading and vocabulary encourages learning and the expansion of new ideas.
