PUEBLO – Two News5 personalities took part in Read Across America week by reading to students in Southern Colorado.

Andy Koen stopped by Carlisle Elementary School in Pueblo. Meteorologist Jessica Van Meter also stopped in Pueblo to visit students at Bradford Elementary.

Read Across America urges kids to celebrate reading every year on March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss, as a way to get kids excited about reading every day.

The National Education Association started planning the first year of the program in 1997, and the first celebration was in 1998.
