Celebrate the joy of books during Read Across America Day on Monday
Event honors Dr. Seuss' birthday
Ready, set, read.
Monday is Read Across America Day, an opportunity to share a book with a child and celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss.
Sponsored annually by the National Education Association, Read Across America is a reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate literacy.
Research has shown that children who are motivated and spend more time reading do better in school.
In cities and towns across the nation, teachers, teenagers, librarians, politicians, actors, athletes, parents, grandparents and others develop NEA’s Read Across America activities to bring reading excitement to children of all ages.

Theodor Seuss Geisel was born March 2, 1904, in Springfield, Mass. By the time of his death in 1991, he was considered the greatest children’s book author of all time.
