The Reporter: ‘Read Across America’ celebrated at Vacaville’s Markham Elementary

By Richard Bammer/

Students at Vacaville’s Markham Elementary School on Friday enjoyed a highly personal version of Read Across America, an initiative on reading created by the National Education Association, with an author’s reading of her book.

For the annual nationwide event, held on the school day closest to March 2, the birthday of children’s author Theodor Seuss “Dr. Seuss” Geisel, some 300 fourth- through sixth-graders gathered in the school’s multipurpose room to see and hear Heidi Joulios read from “Color My Coral” as she projected the book’s wildly colorful and cheery illustrations onto a viewing screen.
