On March 2, the National Education Association calls for every child to be reading in the company of a caring adult.
The National Education Association is building a nation of readers through its signature program, NEA’s Read Across America. Now in its thirteenth year, this year-round program focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources.
NEA’s Read Across America Day, NEA’s national reading celebration takes place each year on or near March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books, and you can too!
With a blog called “funny things are everywhere”, how do I not wish Dr. Seuss a Happy Birthday!

And today is also NEA’s Read Across America Day!
