FARMVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Students all over the East are celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday this week.
Second graders at HB Suggs in Farmville had a special guest Wednesday as a part of the week’s festivities.
Dr. Seuss, also known as Assistant District Attorney Jarrette Pittman, went back to elementary school Wednesday morning. The ADA’s sat and read to some of the students, and they also answered questions.
“A very good experience, and then he had the socks to go along with it, the bow tie the hat. When he walked through the door their faces were speechless,” said Chavon Bryant, a second-grade teacher.
Doctor Seuss’ actual birthday is Thursday. That’s when students all over the country will take part in “Read Across America Day.”
