The Wheels on the Bus Go Read, Read, Read

CEA Executive Director Donald Williams visits Putnam Elementary School, where students chose their own books to take home and share with their families.

This morning kicked off the Connecticut Education Foundation’s 2018 Read Across America Reading Bus Tour, featuring a 38-foot bus decorated with characters from popular Dr. Seuss books and outfitted with bookshelves, benches, carpeting, and 3,000 donated books.

Sponsored by CEF, the nonprofit arm of the Connecticut Education Association, the weeklong literacy event includes guest readers, costumed characters, literacy activities, and new books for nearly 1,000 students.

The colorful bus, which made its first stop at Putnam Elementary School this morning, visits a new town in northeastern Connecticut each day this week, moving next to Thompson, Brooklyn, Sterling, Killingly, and Plainfield. Read more
