National‌ ‌Read‌ ‌Across‌ ‌America‌ ‌Day‌ ‌

Book lovers everywhere will be excited to learn that March is National Reading Month! Within this month, we also celebrate National Read Across America Day which takes place on March 2nd every year. This day, originally started to get kids more excited to read, falls on Dr. Seuss’ birthday, too! Join us this year as we celebrate one of our favorite pastimes - reading!

National Read Across America Day was started in 1998 by the National Education Association (NEA) in order to encourage kids to become excited about reading. Every year since then, the NEA works to promote reading nationwide by organizing community, library, and school events. Not only are parents and teachers involved, but celebrities have also joined the movement to encourage reading in public libraries and schools all across the country. Michelle Obama, Uma Thurman, and Mark Ruffalo are just a few of the celebrities who have participated in this fun day. 

Making reading enjoyable for children at a young age helps motivate kids to become lifelong readers. One of the best ways to make reading fun for children is to help them find books that they enjoy and to make reading an interactive experience. Try taking your children to the library and letting them explore the many book options available! They’ll be able to discover new favorite books and authors. 

Dr. Seuss is one of the most beloved children’s authors, adored by children and parents alike. Throughout his career, he’s written and published over 60 books full of lively stories and vivid illustrations. If you’re looking to get your kids excited about reading, try hosting a birthday party for Dr. Seuss on March 2nd! You can have your children pick out and read their favorite Dr. Seuss books while creating fun Seuss-themed snacks. Making green eggs and ham while reading from the book is a great place to start!
