The National Education Association is building a nation of readers through its signature program, NEA's Read Across America. Now in its fourteenth 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!
On March 2, the National Education Association calls for every child to be reading in the company of a caring adult.
Reading Challenge! I love books and reading. March 2nd is the day we call Read Across America day but I think we should celebrate all March long! My challenge to you all is to spread the word! Easy enough, right? Sure is. Encourage others to read to their kids or borrow some kids if they don't have any. Maybe volunteer at a library or after school program for story time. Help someone learn to read. Donate money to a literacy program. Whatever is on your heart, you can help. Repost this on your blog or link it on facebook. And don't forget to read!
