Brady Quinn is Hooraying for Fish">Brady Quinn is Hooraying for Fish
The National Education Association’s Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss.It’s going on in my school and was an inspiration for this post.
In cities and towns across the nation, teachers, teenagers, librarians, politicians, actors, athletes, parents, grandparents, and others develop NEA’s Read Across America activities to bring reading excitement to children of all ages. Governors, mayors, and other elected officials recognize the role reading plays in their communities with proclamations and floor statements. Athletes and actors issue reading challenges to young readers.
National Library Week(April 13 – April 19) is another time many libraries and organizations help celebrate the love of reading. One literacy program from The Cleveland Browns with collaboration from the Public Library of Cuyahoga County was Read with the Browns. From 2007 – 2009 several Browns players sat down and were recorded reading a favorite children’s book. Sadly, I fear this program is over as an ominous “Read with the Browns has concluded” appears on the library’s archival page. I am hopeful that it will resume once the Browns get their franchise up and running in the right direction.
Still, the player’s recitation of their favorite books lives on.
Seems they teach more than just football at Notre Dame. Brady Quinn has read two books for the library. In 2007 he read Chica Chica Boom Boom and in 2008 he read Hooray For Fish! I’m sure the books are entertaining for the kids, but watching these men read them aloud is hilarious. Good thing you stuck with finance and political science, Brady.
