For my second day in Victoria, TX, I began at Aloe Elementary—home of the Aloe Gators! Not only did my visit fall on Read Across America Day (AKA Dr. Seuss’s birthday), but it was also “crazy hat day” at Aloe; so I fit right in!
There was a cool welcome display (signed by all the Aloe Gators themselves), and a bunch of fun hats to view during both of my presentations. I had a fun-filled morning!
Below is some crazy hat goodness!
After signing a bunch of books, I said, “see you later, Aloe Gators!” (yeah, had to say it) and then zipped over to Hopkins Elementary—home of the shining Stars! There was a huge welcome banner on the front window and I spotted many Dr. Suess characters roaming the halls. Not only that, I had lunch with One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, and Blue Fish (AKA Mrs. Vogt, Mrs. Young, Mrs. Drham, and Mrs. Treviño)!
I signed a bunch of books for the students (thanks for the Mardi Gras beads, Benjamin) and then performed two shows in front of the big screen where I threw out a fish of my own. See below, but note: that fish has yet to be caught on camera.
Thanks to Mrs. Beck and Mrs. Vogt for having me out. Thanks to Mrs. Beck for the generous gift bag. Thanks to Mrs. Vogt for lunch and the snacks. Thanks to Mrs. Thigpen and Mrs. Treviño for help setting up. And the biggest thanks of all goes to Hopkins Stars and the Aloe Gators. Remember the words of Dr. Seuss… “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
