Read Across America

You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.”

What better way to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday than reading to a child? On March 2 (Dr. Seuss’s birthday), Random House and the National Education Association urge you to participate in Read Across and read to a child .

Why Celebrate Dr. Seuss?
Dr. Seuss epitomizes a love of children and learning. Also, his use of rhyme makes his books an effective tool for teaching young children the basic skills they need to be successful. When we celebrate Dr. Seuss and reading, we send a clear message to America’s children that reading is fun and important.

So have some fun. Pick out a good book and Read Across America.
