First Lady Melania Trump celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday, also known as Read Across America Day, by reading to children at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Thursday March 2nd.
She read a Dr. Seuss classic, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”, and used the story to teach children a relevant and valuable lesson.
When the book referenced to a ‘slump’, Melania said, “So sometimes you don’t feel good, right? But then - what do you do? You go places where you feel better.”
“I came to encourage you to read - and to think about what you want to achieve in life.”
On Wednesday Melania Trump also visited sick kids at the Children’s National Health System to plant seeds with the children in their healing garden.
“I am a passionate believer in integrating and interpreting nature’s elements into our daily lives to create a warm, nurturing and positive environment. I believe that these same natural benefits can be instrumental to enhancing the health and well-being of all children. It is important to me that children can recognize, identify and express their feelings in order to promote their mental wellness and healing process,” said Trump.
Melania Trump’s love and efforts for children continues to demonstrate her admirable actions as the First Lady.
