Red Level Elementary School transformed its halls and library into a fictional land inspired by Dr. Seuss as a special holiday treat on Monday and Tuesday.

Faculty members made hallways into Whoville trees and doors into characters from “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.”

Kristen Bush, the school’s librarian, said that she knew something had to be done for the kids to enjoy before Christmas break began.

“Last year we did something similar with the ‘Polar Express,’ ” she said.

“With the new Grinch movie coming out, I thought it would be awesome to make the library into a little Whoville for a couple of days.”

Bush, along with several other members of the faculty, decided to start decorating the halls and the library.

“We started preparing about a week or two ago,” Bush said.

“We started tracing out characters and painting them.”

Besides getting to see a real life Whoville, the children also got to watch “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.”

They were told to dress in comfy pajamas and were served snacks, such as drinks called “Wh2o” and donuts.

“I think my favorite part about it is seeing the children’s reactions, they just look so excited,” Bush said.

Melissa Price, the school counselor, also said seeing the happy and excited faces the kids have makes it the best.

“They have so much fun,” she said.
