Read Across America Day

Annually on March 2nd, National Read Across America Day is celebrated, coinciding with the birthday of Dr. Seuss. This event is a component of Read Across America, an initiative on reading established by the National Education Association. Given its focus on encouraging children to read, the celebration is typically school-centered. In instances where March 2nd falls on a weekend, the observance is shifted to the nearest school day.
