Read Across America

Mark Your Calendars: March 2nd Is NEA’s Read Across America Day

Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on or near March 2, the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books, and you can too!

Read Across America also provides OEA members, parents, caregivers, and children the resources and activities they need to keep reading on the calendar 365 days a year, to motivate children to read and generate new enthusiasm for reading.

“You’re Never Too Old, Too Wacky, Too Wild, To Pick Up A Book And Read With A Child.”
