Salter Employees Tip Their Hats to Dr. Seuss and Reading!



As you enter Salter Elementary, you are warmly greeted with a beautiful bulletin board honoring Dr. Seuss and all employees of the school. Jenni Griffin cleverly found a way to promote reading, recognize administration, faculty, and staff, AND make the school a happier place to be.

On the display, all employees had a hat which listed their favorite book. The principal, Mr. Cobb's favorite...Junie B. Jones and the Yucky, Blucky Fruitcake. I wonder how many students will be checking this book out!

As students walk by, they naturally read whatever is in sight. The message on the board is clear, books are important to every adult at the school and should be important to students. I bet the books listed on the board may even stand a better chance of being read because some grownup has given their stamp of approval. It is great to see everyone at Salter working together and taking opportunities, like Dr. Seuss' birthday, to motivate children to read!

Dr Seuss was my favourite author as a kid. His books were fun, his illustrations were quirky, and more importantly, his most important objective was to get children to read. I'm glad I grew up reading his books rather than these books. And although he had his moral lessons, above all, writing and illustrating was a pure art for him. I knew reading his books that he enjoyed every moment of it.
