may come in like a lion but March also kicks off with an important program that takes place in schools, libraries and bookstores all across the nation. The event, usually scheduled around or on Dr. Seuss’s (aka Theodore Geisel) birthday (March 2nd), is Read Across America Day and it is the largest annual, nationally recognized reading event.

The National Education Association’s goal is to build a nation of readers through its signature program Read Across America, now in its thirteenth year. This year-round program focuses on motivating children and teens to read. On March 2, the National Education Association (NEA) is calling for every child to read in the company of a caring adult. Or WORD Dog.

Invite guest readers to your school, encourage  your parents to participate and even get their colleagues and your community excited about Read Across America Day. Send an animated Read Across America e-card created especially for NEA by Reading Rockets, a literacy partner this year.

❝And there came to be evening and there came to be morning…❞

That’s life today!
