Read Across America 2012!

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

Get involved! NEA (National Education Association)’s Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes  place annually on March 2—Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books, and you can too!
