Reading for Dr. Seuss Day

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Some students at Kennewick's Highland Middle School went to two elementary schools Thursday.

They were there reading Dr. Seuss books to younger students in honor of Dr. Seuss day on Friday.

Dressed in their "Cat in the Hat" hats, they stopped first at Westgate Elementary, and then at Saint Joseph's Catholic School.

After reading and being read to, the students asked and answered questions about what the books.

Michael DeFord, one of the student readers from Highland Middle School, said"it's nice to show the kids that like, even though we're older and we're the 'cool kids,' or whatever, we still read and it's good to show them that."

The older students are members of Highland Middle School's honor society. This is the 15th year in a row they've participated in celebrating Dr. Seuss day, which marks the author's birthday, March 2nd.
