Schools celebrated Read Across America Day on Friday.

The event is typically observed on Dr. Seuss Day; this year, that lands on Sunday, so some schools and child care organizations celebrated Friday.

Several people at News 5 participated in the events. Preston Ayres spent Friday morning reading with Pre-Kindergarten classes at Stonewall Jackson Elementary School; Rebecca Pepin read at Abingdon Elementary School; and Julie Newman read at Washington Lee Elementary.
