Celebrate Read Across America on March 1
NEA's Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program for every child in every community each March, celebrating the value of reading and the birthday of the beloved Dr. Seuss.
Thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers across the country will bring together kids and adults to celebrate the joys of reading. State and national education leaders will visit schools and classrooms to celebrate reading.
Organize a Read Across America event in your school or classroom. Find resources for activities, booklists, and more:
