Read Across America helps students

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Some students at Lake Park Elementary got a special surprise Friday.     

Darton College baseball players were among the visitors reading to children as part of Read Across America Day, in recognition of Dr. Seuss's birthday.

Lake Park Elementary Media Specialist Sallie Raines said guest readers make today extra special.    

"With children, they see us everyday.  We're sort of the same old same old.  Having a guest reader is just a wonderful way for getting their attention and getting them a little more excited."       

Teachers say they don't just teach children reading skills but also to how to love reading,  so they'll choose to do so on their own.     

This is the 16th annual observance of Read Across America, which is put on by the National Education Association.
