That is just one of the many classic lines penned by Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. His fun, witty, and rhythmic writings have been delighting children and adults alike for decades. Therefore, when the National Education Association (NEA) decided to create an annual day to celebrate reading, it made perfect sense to select March 2, Dr. Seuss’ birthday, as the day!
In 1998, the first NEA’s Read Across America Day was celebrated, and it has been going strong as the country’s largest celebration of reading ever since. On March 2 every year, volunteers fill schools, libraries, community centers, and bookstores, to read Dr. Seuss favorites to kids of all ages. Teachers and school administrators infuse the daily curriculum with fun Dr. Seuss-themed challenges and activities. In recent years, celebrities, including Michelle Obama, Danny DeVito, and Alex Rodriguez, have participated in NEA’s Read Across America events.
These activities generate a lot of excitement for kids, but they also raise motivation and awareness about the importance of reading.
To get involved with the 20th NEA’s Read Across America Day, contact your local school, library, or bookstore to find out about events taking place in your community.
