Read-A-Thon Encourages Children to Read for Life

It was a read-a-thon of sorts at ECU Monday. About thirty freshman English students at the university hosted around a hundred kindergarten students from Wahl-Coates Elementary for a "Cat in The Hat" themed reading celebration day at Minges Coliseum. The kids made their own red and white striped hats, played games, made cookies, and got to meet the "Cat in The Hat." They also had their pictures taken with Petey the Pirate.
