Read Across America Day

The National Education Association (NEA) today celebrates “Read Across America Day”. This national event, for children and children at heart, takes place today in honor of the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel — you guessed it, Dr. Seuss.

This year’s theme is “The Lorax”, originally published in 1971 as a warning against the effects of society on the environment (my hero!!).

When was the last (or first) time you picked up a Dr. Seuss book?

Why not pick one up this weekend and celebrate Read Across America by yourself, or with your loved ones. Let’s be kids again, if only for a little while.

Leave a comment with your favorite Dr. Seuss book and let’s chat about circuses, red fish, blue fish, green eggs and ham, and other fancies.  I can’t wait to hear from you!
