San Francisco BookPALS gathered today for their 15th celebration of Read Across America Day, at the very school where BookPALS began in San Francisco 15 years ago: Rooftop School. SF BookPALS Mary Dilts, Duncan Fife, Martin Ganapolos, William Hall, Roger Oyama, and Martha Stookey were joined by local author Ashley Wolff to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday and read his story Gerald McBoing Boing to over 350 kids. The kids enjoyed joining in at the end, practicing some “Boings!” and other sound effects along with SF BookPALS!
Thank you to librarian Tamra Marshall. BookPALS know better than anyone that reading with a caring adult is not something that should only be celebrated once a year, but EVERY DAY!
