Event description


United Way of Greater New Haven believes that all children deserve the opportunity to reach their full potential, and live their best possible lives. Reading aloud is a wonderful way of engaging with young children and creates the foundation for success at school and in life.

In honor of Read Across America, students in Branford, Hamden, New Haven, West Haven, and Orange will join millions of their peers across the country to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday and the joy of reading. We invite you to be a part of this exciting event!

Event Dates: Feb. 27, Feb. 28, March 1, March 4, March 6th
Time commitment: approximately 1.5 hours

You will read Dr. Seuss books to students in their classrooms, have the opportunity to write a note and sign the books you read, proudly wear a LIVE UNITED t-shirt, and feel awesome for the rest of the day!
