Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! The NEA's (National Education Association) Read Across America Day celebration takes place every year on March 2nd, the birthday of the beloved Dr. Seuss. In 1997 the NEA decided that there should be a day that celebrated and got kids excited about reading again. They chose Dr. Seuss's Birthday and Read Across America became the largest celebration of reading in the country. The purpose is to motivate children to read and hopefully create life long readers like yourselves. :) If you ever want to get involved you can go to your local NEA associations, a library, bookstore, or local chapter of NEA's Read Across America! Website is informative as well.
The Lorax is the featured book this year! Doesn't this give you motivation to spread the joy of reading!
