“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places that you’ll go.” ~ Dr. Seuss
Today, March 2, is Read Across America Day! The annual celebration, intended to motivate students to read, marks the birthday of beloved children’s author, Dr. Seuss.
Better known to most readers as Dr. Seuss, Dr. Theodor Geisel was born on March 2, 1904. Children around the world celebrate his birthday by reading his treasured books and spending time in school and at home doing fun activities that reflect his brilliant work.
Many communities across the country will celebrate by bringing kids and books together. Be sure to check your local library and community center for Read Across America celebrations. Encourage a child in your life to gain a passion for reading. Celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss together with your child(ren) today!
Perhaps you ask, “How to celebrate?” or “What should I do?” Well, in honor of Seuss’s birthday, you should pick up a book, too!
