A child’s ability to read has a direct effect on their future success. Reading with your child helps to increase their vocabulary and improves their reading fluency and comprehension.
The National Education Association’s (NEA) Read Across America began in 1998 as a way to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Seuss by encouraging children to read.
Since its creation, educators, parents, caregivers and students have embraced Read Across America and helped to turn it into the largest reading celebration.
This year, Read Across America is focused on the importance of giving every student a voice by giving them access to a wide range of books that tell diverse stories.
On March 2, we encourage EVERYONE to pick up a book and read to a child.
So, whether it’s your favorite Dr. Seuss book or something new and exciting: Grab your hat and read with the cat!
For more information, please visit the NEA website.
To celebrate our love of reading and books, we’re asking educators, parents, students, and supporters to share which childhood book meant the most to them or how they are celebrating Read Across America.
