Today is the 15th observance of the National Education Association’s Read Across America.The purpose of the event is to encourage and motivate children and teens to read.
Read Across America happens on March 2nd because that is Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Imagine how many kids have developed a passion for reading from Dr. Seuss!
Schools, libraries, and community centers around the country are offering special events today. But you don’t have to attend a formal event to participate. If you have children or grandchildren, spend some time reading with them today. Share with neighborhood kids how reading impacted your life when you were their age. Or pay a visit to Seusville and pretend you’re a kid again, falling in love with Dr. Seuss’s stories for the first time.
