Reading “The Lorax” to Kindergartners

I had the amazing opportunity to read  to a class of kindergartners and learn about how to operate after-school programs for an elementary school in Harlem. The book I chose was “The Lorax,” Dr. Seuss’s environmental manifesto that he wrote way before environmental stewardship became a popular sentiment.

I owe the experience to John Reddick, the acting board member of Harlem Link Charter school. He was open-hearted enough to invite me into the school after we met at a bar where he was celebrating his birthday.

The pictures below show me reading to the class as they gave me their full attention! I did voices for each character in the book, but thank god there’s only like two characters.

Also, I had to help them open their milk cartons, because their hands were too small!
