Happy National Read Across America Day! Read Across America is a program put together by the National Education Association that encourages children and teens to read by partnering with various community organizations, doing events across the country, and by providing reading resources. One of their more publicized events throughout the year is National Read Across America Day, which is March 2nd AND is also Dr. Seuss’ birthday. As a tribute to Dr. Seuss this year, the National Education Association has chosen Oh, The Places You’ll Go as the book to be read across the country.
