Today is Dr. Seuss’s birthday and to celebrate Random House and the National Education Association are sponsoring Read Across America.
Schools and libraries are participating in special reading events, but one of the best ways to observe the day is for parents to read to children, grandparents to read to grandchildren, big brothers and sisters to read to little brothers and sisters, and friends and neighbors to read to kids they know and care about.
The National Education Assocation website says:
On March 2, the National Education Association calls for every child to be reading in the company of a caring adult.
Reading is so important for children that anything to make it fun and important is a good thing. And what could make reading more fun than Dr. Seuss!
