The Thunder reinforce the importance of reading through a fun interactive assembly featuring Boomer, the lovable Thunderbird mascot. A Thunder front office employee will read Casey at the Bat by Ernest Thayer and Fine Feathered Friends by Dr. Seuss while Boomer acts out the stories. Each March since 2005, members of the Thunder front office visit schools in the greater Trenton area to participate in the National Education Association’s Read Across America program. The Thunder staff members serve as “guest readers” and read books to classrooms of elementary school children. The National Education Association’s Read Across America program is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on or around Dr. Seuss’s birthday.
