Thursday marks National Read Across America Day. It just so happens to coincide with Dr. Seuss’ birthday, too. To celebrate, First Lady Melania Trump surprised children at the New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City and read them a few Dr. Seuss books in his honor.
“Do you know what is today? It’s reading day,” the first lady told the children. “So it’s reading day, and I came here to encourage everyone to read and to just think about books and what you want to achieve in life and just extend your horizon and think very, very outside of the box.”
Among the books she read was her 10-year-old son Barron’s favorite book and Seuss’s classic “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” While at the center, Mrs. Trump also took to Twitter to share a photo from her visit.
“Honoring children,” she wrote as the caption for the picture, which features her showing the kids a page from a book.
