March 2 is Dr. Seuss' birthday, giving many schools a chance to celebrate his works Friday.

Lindsey Elementary School in Warner Robins capped off 'Read Across America' week with a few guest readers and even served green eggs and ham for breakfast.

Houston County Schools superintendent Dr. Robin Hines was one of the school's visitors, and he took time to read a couple of books to the kids in Ms. Barnes' fifth grade class.

"Reading is important, and obviously it is. These kids do a great job. To read and use appropriate use of the English language is so important. It's going to help them on down the road, and these kids are well on their way, doing a great job," Hines says.

Read Across America Week is a national event.

If he were still alive, Saturday would be Dr. Seuss' 109th birthday.
