Primrose Atlee Commons Dresses it up for Dr. Seuss and Read Across America

Ann Andrade of Primrose School at Atlee Commons really knows how to celebrate a birthday. And she proved it with all of the staff and children during a big birthday bash for Dr. Seuss and celebration of Read Across America Day this week.

“The children and staff at the Primrose School of Atlee Commons celebrated Read Across America Day  on Friday, March 2nd (Dr. Seuss’s Birthday) by dressing as their favorite book characters and collecting 713 books for Richmond’s Children’s Book Bank,” explains Ann.

We can’t put it into words better than Ann, so here are her photos. You’ll love what you see!
