(By Mr. Speaker, Mr. Kiss, and Delegate Martin)

Declaring March 2, 2000, as "Read Across West Virginia Day".
Whereas, There is no greater contribution we can make to the education of our children than to instill in them the love of reading; and
Whereas, Theodore Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss) has been instrumental in introducing generations of youngsters to the joys of reading through his words and illustrations that take readers on magical journeys through whimsical worlds with zany characters, like a top-hatted cat and strange colored fish; and
Whereas, The birth date of Dr. Seuss, March 2, is an appropriate day to promote the love of reading at an early age; therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Delegates:
That March 2, 2000, is hereby declared and dedicated as Read Across West Virginia Day.
