Seuss in the Assembly
During Friday’s session of the Nevada Legislature, Assemblyman Bernie Anderson asked to read “I Can Read with My Eyes Closed” by Dr. Seuss on the author’s birthday.
Assembly Speaker Barbara Buckley asked to introduce Anderson and did so with a poem of her own:
“We like to hear Bernie rhyme.
“We like to hear it all the time.
“We like to hear it on the floor.
“We like to hear it more and more.
“And so, without further ado, here’s Mr. Anderson to read to you.”
Afterward, the Assembly adopted a resolution recognizing March 2, 2007, as “Read Across America” Day in Nevada in commemoration of what would have been Dr. Seuss’ 103rd birthday. Seuss died in 1991.
