"The 5th Annual Read Across America Community Celebration is set for Edmonds and Lynnwood next week. Occurring near the birthday of Dr. Seuss (March 2) and sponsored by the National Education Association, Read Across America Day is focused on encouraging families to read together, and also raises funds locally for Edmonds School District libraries.
The fun starts Thurday, March 2 from 3-7 p.m. at Crossroads Center at 196th and Highway 99 in Lynnwood. There will be guest readers at Yogurtland, an “I’ve got a Thing for Reading” scavenger hunt starting at Great Clips, a balloon artist at Hop Jacks, carnival games at various locations in the shopping center, and photo opportunities with the Cat in the Hat, Thing 1, and Thing 2.
Yogurtland is providing free yogurt for the first 100 students, and Hop Jacks is donating 20 percent of guest bills that evening to school libraries — just bring a Read Across America flyer. There will be adult goody bags available, and Smith Brothers Farms will be handing out free beverages."
