Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Beloved children's author Dr. Seuss would have been 109 years old tomorrow.

So this week school children all across America have been celebrating his birthday by eating cake, of course, and reading their favorite Dr. Seuss books. Reporter Jay Michaels read to fifth graders at Sawtooth Elementary School today. Weatherman Brian Neudorff was also on hand for the festivities.

Debbie Cook, Librarian at Sawtooth Elementary, says, "Mostly that the kids will learn to love to read, and enjoy watching other people read, and get that experience."

March 2nd is National Read Across America Day, when the National Education Association encourages everyone to read books.

Some of Dr. Seuss's most famous books include "Green Eggs and Ham," "The Cat in the Hat," and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas."

Doctor Seuss passed away in 1991 at age 87.
