Several characters from the Dr. Seuss books recently came to life at the Long County Head Start Center in Ludowici.  
The guests who visited included the Cat in the Hat, Cindy Lou Who, Thing 1 and Thing 2. They came out to read to children to promote the Read Across America program.
The reading program is an annual event that takes place each year around March 2, which is Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel’s birthday.
Tres Hamilton, executive director for the Coastal Georgia Area Community Action Authority, sported an orange wig and read “The Hair Book.”  She said the program was wonderful and the kids were really excited about seeing all of the characters.
Brooke Ann Childers, district representative for Rep. Jack Kingston, also was on hand dressed as Cindy Lou Who.  She read “And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street.”  
Kadee Dasher read “The Cat and the Hat” while dressed as the book’s central character.
“I’m so thankful to all of our readers who came out today,” said Vicky Nelson, director of the Long County Head Start center. “The children get so much out of seeing new people in their classes.”
