Read Across America Day

Pick up a book and read with your children this Tuesday, March 2, for Read Across America Day!

Children all across America will be celebrating the birthday of the beloved author, Dr. Seuss and participating in 'Read Across America' sponsored by the National Education Association.

According to the NEA web-site, "motivating children to read is an important factor in student achievement and creating lifelong successful readers.  Research has shown that children who are motivated and spend more time reading do better in school."

The NEA created and sponsors Read Across America and there are a variety of events planned in your area.  Check out the NEA web-site for more information.
