Bossier City kids headed out to Pierre Bossier Mall over the weekend to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday at Read Across Louisiana.

Courtney Feliciano with the Bossier Association of Educators, who’s also the curriculum instructor at Waller Elementary, tells KEEL News there were lots of special guests at the event.

“The Cat in the Hat is here,” Feliciano says. “We’ve had Brandon Harris, who’s the Parkway quarterback football star that’s agreed to go play for LSU next year. We’ve had Representative Henry Burns, Representative Jeff Thompson.” All those guests, and others, read popular Dr. Seuss books to the kids.

Bossier High School cheerleaders also handed out free books and cookies, as well as Cat in the Hat hats and Thing hair, all in an effort to encourage kids to read.

“We just can’t stress enough how important reading is,” Feliciano says. “And we want to help parents and kids get excited about reading and so that’s why we gave out free books, to give the kids a chance to go home and enjoy their free book.”
