    Read Across America

    As a former English teacher encouraging kids to read is dear to my heart. So I encourage you to participate in Read Across America Day by reading to a kid.

    March 2nd is the National Education Association’s Read Across America Day. As the NEA explains it, “In May 1997, a small reading task force at NEA came up with a big idea. "Let's create a day to celebrate reading," the group decided. "We hold pep rallies to get kids excited about football. We assemble to remember that Character Counts. Why don't we do something to get kids excited about reading? We'll call it 'NEA's Read Across America' and we'll celebrate it on Dr. Seuss's birthday."

    Click here to go to the NEA website to find out how you can participate in Read Across America.
