Students across Southwest Georgia set aside their every day work to celebrate the birth of a literary legend.

Read Across America is celebrated in schools across the country every March to honor Dr. Seuss' birthday.

On Monday, many community leaders visited different schools to share their favorite stories with the children.

Lamar Reese Media Specialist, Pam Roshio tells FOX 31 that Dr. Seuss was very instrumental in writing children's books. His use of a basic world list, that the young children were learning, makes his stories innovative and popular.
