NEA's Read Across America Takes Place on March 3, 2014
Calling all children, it’s time to read! National Education Association’s (NEA) 17th Annual Read Across America event will take place on Monday, March 3, 2014.
The day is designed to encourage reading among school kids. Here is more about the event from the website: “The Seussical celebration will kick off a week of reading across the nation as NEA members gather students, parents, and community members together to share their love of reading. It’s never too early to plan your event and NEA’s RAA will be posting tips and resources to help you make your event Seussational.”
Schools, libraries and book stores are encouraged to host their own events to support the cause. For example, Barnes & Noble is hosting free story time events to support the national day of reading at stores across the country. Read a Dr. Seuss book with your young ones. Take your learner to a bookstore so s/he can make a make a purchase choice and feel ownership for the book. What a wonderful way to model a love of books, particularly during Read Across America!
