It was "Read Across America" Day in honor of the birthday of Dr. Seuss and our very own Craig Kausen, Chuck Jones's grandson, read "Horton Hears a Who!"--a book that Chuck Jones and Dr. Seuss turned into a Peabody Award-winning half-hour television special in 1970--to students from Vista Verde Elementary School in Irvine. After the reading, everyone got busy drawing a "long-nosed, over-weight, kind-hearted" character.
