Students, Teachers Rev Up For Read Across America

COLUMBUS – February 29, 2016 – Students across Ohio will join millions of their peers around the country to celebrate the National Education Association’s (NEA) eighteenth annual Read Across America Day on March 2, 2016.

It’s expected that more than 45 million people, both young and old, will pick up a book and read on NEA’s Read Across America Day, which celebrates Dr. Seuss’s birthday and the joys of reading.

The Ohio Education Association (OEA) urges all who understand and appreciate the value of reading to get together with young people under one of the red-and-white stovepipe hats made famous by the Cat in the Hat-for a flurry (or furry) of reading excitement!
