There were 11 separate stations, with different readers and books, with three rotations; 6:30, 6:45, and 7:00.
Mr. Hoffman and Mr. Webster were telling me that this event has been going on at Wildomar Elementary for between 20 and 25 years.
The attendance guesstimate was around 180, counting both students and parents. A special appearance was made by The Cat in the Hat himself (or herself as the case may have been).
As you can see from the photo montage below, Wildomar's mayor Bridgette Moore was enjoying reading to the kids, and really got into it by the third time through the story in 40 mins.

Kudos to Wildomar Elementary for putting together another night the kids will long remember. While imbuing the current generation with the type of wonder that comes from the wit and whimsy of Dr. Seuss.
