Barcelona Head Start Families Join in Literacy Event


It was a day of fun family literacy at Barcelona Head Start as parents and grandparents joined the children of Barcelonaís classroom #1 in a celebration of the 112th birthday of the late Theodor Geisel- better known as Dr. Seuss, a world renowned childrenís author and early literacy advocate.

Families like Head Start mother, Jessie Vega and her son, four year old Elijah, sat alongside each other as teacher, Crystal Montes-Nevarez read The Cat in The Hat-one of the authorís most familiar works which also inspired a movie of the same name, and an animated series on PBS Kids titled, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot about That!

In preparation for the event, parents helped their children create whisker masks and the mischievous Catsís trademark red and white striped hat and bow, which they wore on the day of the reading.

To learn more about the Cat in the Hat or its animated series, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot about That! Visit pbskids.org.
