Zac Efron jetted out of town to attend to some business in London and was snapped as he stepped off a plane at Heathrow Airport on Wednesday (March 7).
But that was after he took care of some very important business in New York City – inspiring kids to pick up a book. The actor spent Friday morning (March 2) reading Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax to 300 schoolchildren at New York’s Public Library. Zac– who voices a character in the animated movie based on the book – was joined by co-star Danny Devito. The event also marked Dr Seuss’ 108th birthday.
The former High School Musical star and Danny were taking part in a reading event to promote the American Literacy Campaign. “As a kid, I remember thinking, ‘What would it be like to go on this big adventure and learn what the Once-ler knows?’ Now here I am, two decades later, voicing Ted in Dr Seuss’ The Lorax,” Zac said.
“It’s an honor to not only be a part of this movie, but to work with the National Education Association’s Read Across America to inspire the love of reading in millions of kids.”
