This year’s Dr. Suess event was absolutely perfect. It started when our newest volunteer, Nina, a high school senior. She was delighted to don the Dr. Seuss costume and spend the day playing Cat in the Hat.
Then, Tara Stern arrived from Temple B’nai Tikvah with 900 books to donate.. Her toddlers patiently waited while we unloaded the books.
They, of course, were delighted to meet the Cat and proudly posed with her.
The day was so calm and pleasant. Everyone was thrilled with the Dr. Seuss books they chose and we never ran out.
But the best was yet to come. At 5:30, Justine arrived with her son Sammy. This amazing six year old decided he no longer needed birthday gifts and asked for books to donate. He and his sisters counted all 185 books. Everyone was so overwhelmed by his generosity that they stopped looking for books and clapped for him.
