1. Celebrate Read Across America Day, March 2nd!

Read a book, and celebrate Read Across America Day! Read Across America is an annual event sponsored by the National Education Association (NEA). It is a motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. Click here to take the pledge! For printable activities, and tips on celebrating Read Across America, go to the Seussville website! Find more tips and resources on the NEA website. Here are a few quotes on the importance of reading— "Children are made readers on the laps of their parents." — Emilie Buchwald (author and publisher) "I used to walk to school with my nose buried in a book." — Coolio (musician, rapper, chef, actor, and record producer) "You may have tangible wealth untold. Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold. Richer than I you can never be — I had a mother who read to me." — Strickland Gillilan (American poet and humorist) “The single most important thing a parent can do to help a child learn to read is to transmit a love of reading.” –Phyllis Hunter, National Fellow of the Institute of Learning Join me, and read a book today!
