National Education Association's Read Across America Day takes place each year on or near March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens and books—and you can, too!
The theme is green for a very special 2012 Read Across America celebration. NEA's Read Across America campaign will showcase the Lorax book, as well as NBC/Universal's “The Lorax”. Whether it's planting a Truffala tree forest, reading garden or having the Lorax lead your reading parade, don't forget to share your plans for celebrating NEA's Read Across America on the Read Across America pledge site.
This is a great opportunity for literacy service and service-learning projects. Sign up today!
