In what Librarian Miss Penny says is the most well-attended of the Oakland Warriors library reading events, Jason Richardson, Brian Cardinal and mascot Thunder visited the San Leandro Library as part of the Read to Achieve program. In honor of the late Dr. Seuss' 100th birthday, Thunder read "I can read with my eyes shut," by Dr. Seuss while Richardson and Cardinal each read one half of "Joseph had a little overcoat" by Simms Taback.
Free t-shirts emblazoned with the logo of one of the sponsors were given to each child, plus a bag containing a book, ruler, granola, a Read to Achieve bookmark, a toothbrush, a copy of Hoop Magazine featuring the Warriors, a kit to fingerprint your child, a book of healthy recipes for kids in English and Spanish, and a black and white photo of an Oakland Warriors program. All kids also received a coupon to Hometown Buffet. Prizes were awarded to children for answering questions about the books that were read, the players' shoe sizes, and about the Warriors. Prizes included a t-shirt, Warriors year book, signed photos and a huge basket containing lots of books.
The following photos are all from warriors.com and are available for purchase here.
