Read Across America Day Bus Tour in Northeastern Connecticut

See pics, highlights from this year's literacy event

Monday kicked off the Connecticut Education Foundation's 2018 Read Across America Reading Bus Tour, featuring a 38-foot bus decorated with characters from popular Dr. Seuss books and outfitted with bookshelves, benches, carpeting, and 3,000 donated books.

The bus has been shaking up Connecticut's "quiet corner," rolling into the six of the state's rural northeastern towns.

Sponsored by CEF, the nonprofit arm of the Connecticut Education Association, the weeklong literacy event includes guest readers, costumed characters, literacy activities, and new books for nearly 1,000 students.
