Washington, DC - Tomorrow, Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA-11) will celebrate 'Read Across America' Day by reading to Mrs. Bylow's second grade class at the Claudia Landen School in Stockton.

Rep. McNerney will read "The Lorax" by beloved children's author Dr. Seuss, whose birthday is celebrated on March 2.

"I remember reading Dr. Seuss books to my own children and I look forward to reading 'The Lorax' - a book with an enduring and timely lesson - to Mrs. Bylow's class," Rep. McNerney said.  "It's so important that we encourage our children to read, beginning at an early age because it's critical to their development.  Reading exposes children to information and ideas beyond their immediate environment."

What: Reading "The Lorax" to Mrs. Bylow's second grade class
Where: Claudia Landeen School, 4128 Feather River Dr., Stockton
When: 9:00 a.m., March 2, 2007
