Local author Carole Cliffe, in conjunction with the Parent Teachers Organization at Skyblue Mesa in Canyon Country, kicked off the Read Across America week in early March with kindergarten through sixth grade students.

Dressed in full Dr. Seuss attire, Mrs. Cliffe read to students her creative rhyming book, “Alowishes Unusual Birthday,” which teaches kids responsibility.

In addition, she introduced her new book “Shaping Up Your Character A-Z Mathematically.” Moral and math literacy is the goal of the unique book, which combines good character traits with geometric shapes.

Good character traits such as honesty, kindness, gratitude, and respect, are paired with math standards.

Rita Rectangle teaches four ways to be respectful. Haley Hexagon teaches six ways to be helpful. This book compliments the Character Counts program which is being taught on school sites throughout the Santa Clarita Valley.

Mrs. Cliffe explained to the upper graders about the writing process, and encouraged students to not give up on their dreams. Written in autographed copies to students, Mrs. Cliffe wrote, “You read, you achieve, you succeed.”
