Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) read to elementary schoolchildren on Friday in honor of Read Across America Day, also know as Dr. Seuss Day, which takes place Monday, March 2. Hawley was excited to spread the joy that reading can bring to a child’s life and demonstrate the importance it plays in becoming a well- rounded student and successful scholar.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my experience reading to the children at Churchville Elementary,” said Hawley. “Reading can transform a child’s imagination and provide them with a wealth of knowledge and insight far beyond the scope of many other activities. It is crucial that young children read as much as possible in their developmental years to expand their vocabularies, increase their ability to quickly process information, and deepen their knowledge of a variety of issues.”
