Pelican Rapids Viking Elementary students engaged in the annual celebration of literacy and schoolwide “reading binge” last week–celebrating the most famous childrens author of all, Dr. Suess.
“Read Across America” has been a tradition in Pelican, and schools everywhere. And the mascots for the literacy promotion campaign are Dr. Suess and his famous character, “The Cat in the Hat.”
