HEIGHTS — In commemorating national March is Reading Month, Wayne County Commissioner Diane Webb (D-8th District) read to students March 28 at Kinloch Elementary School.
Each year, schoolchildren across the nation kick off March is Reading Month by celebrating the birthday of the beloved Dr. Seuss, then participate in other reading-related activities.
“We need to do all we can to show children that reading is fun, because it’s such an important part of not only their education, but their entire lives,” Webb said. “I really enjoy reading, and really enjoyed being at Kinloch. It was so nice to share my love of reading with the students.”
Research has found that literacy skills begin developing at birth, and with such activities students are able to enjoy greater success overall. Webb supports the cause behind elementary literacy in the United States and believes the highest form of learning begins with those skills gained through reading and listening.
