Thomasville-- Children all over America celebrated the birthday of Dr. Seuss's Monday.   His birthday also marks Read Across America Day.  

In Thomasville, the 3 and 4-year-olds at Hand-in-Hand primary school excitedly watched one of Seuss's works, "Horton Hatches the Egg", come to life as it was performed by some of their teachers.  

Lucy Thompson, the school's Media Specialist said, "Its just a great way to promote reading and hopefully a fun way to encourage students to love reading books."  The kids joined along by reciting one of the lines of the play.

The celebration was topped off by readers visiting each classroom and watching a short Dr. Seuss movie.
