Seuss is Loose—Read Across America to Celebrate the Good Doctor’s Birthday

Theodor Geisel, better known to most of us as Dr Seuss, had a birthday yesterday. March 2 would have been his 110th natal celebration. Because it was Sunday and on Sundays we do Sunday things, the powers that be decided to celebrate today, Monday, March 3 instead. Today is Read Across America in celebration of Dr Seuss. The National Education Association4686 is in on the act, creating events far and wide to motivate readers to make books a lifetime habit. All week there are reading events with schools, libraries, and community centers for readers young and old. Jump in and find out about what’s going on in your neck of the woods–can you volunteer to read aloud to kids, tutor a student, do a book swap, or more? There is a boatload of resources here, to help support you in pitching in.

“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child.”

Happy Birthday, Dr Seuss!
