JACKSON, Tenn- Kids at an east Jackson head start program have some fun while learning about the importance of reading.

More than 200 students at Washington Douglas Head Start took part in :Read Across America" Week. The kids had green eggs and ham then to to meet the Cat in the Hat, which are both featured in the Dr. Seuss books.

Students joined others across Americans celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday in an effort to bring kids together with books.

"I think kids can relate to Dr. Seuss because he has such funny characters in each of his books and they are all different and each book has something interesting in it," said Pat Pillow of Washington Douglas Head Start.

Read Across America continues until March 2.
