Albany -- Monday is Dr. Suess' birthday and elementary schools across the country celebrated by picking up a book.

Students all over the nation had special guests read to them as part of the Read Across America program.

Julianne Chambliss, the wife of Senator Saxby Chambliss, read to students at Jackson Height Elementary Monday morning.

But the students being read to weren't the only ones to benefit from the reading. "I think they are definitely getting something from it especially if they want to get into the teaching profession," said Albany High Monitor, Murray Jones.

"Obviously it's the corner stone of our education. It's the pathway to get the America Dream is to encourage our children to read and love it," said Julianne Chambliss.

Albany High students, Dougherty County school board officials, members of Kiwanis, and even one of our reporters made their way to a classroom for the national celebration.
