"You're never too old, too wacky, too wild,
to pick up a book and read to a child."
Read Across America Day is celebrated on March 2nd, Dr. Seuss' birthday. The National Education Association sponsors events to inspire reading in children throughout our schools and communities. This is the 14th year that thousands of participating schools, libraries and community centers will celebrate the day by reading together.
First Lady Michelle Obama and NEA President Dennis Van Roekel will be reading to 400 local schoolchildren at the Library of Congress today for the national kickoff of NEA's Read Across America (along with a bunch of famous people).
