BOISE -- School children in Boise had a special visitor today.

The Cat in the Hat stopped by Grace Jordan Elementary School and later visited Jefferson Elementary School as part of the Cat-a-Van Reading Tour, promoting two important habits.

And here's what I say - I promise to read and brush every day, said Tim Lowe, Principal, Grace Jordan Elementary School. All of the students were encouraged to brush their teeth for two minutes twice a day, and to read 20 minutes a day,

The National Education Association and Renaissance Dental provided books, toothbrushes and other items to children in need.

Grace Jordan and Jefferson schools are also receiving grants to pay for library books.
