The Cat in the Hat, Sam-I-Am and The Lorax invaded elementary schools across Suffolk on Wednesday as schools celebrated Read Across America.

The celebration takes place annually, but not all schools participate every year. It is often themed after the famed author and illustrator Dr. Seuss, as it takes place on his birthday.

“We don’t do it every year, to make it extra special,” said Michele Waggoner, the library media specialist at Oakland Elementary School.
