Children around the world love his books and their characters. It is no wonder then that National Read Across America Day occurs on Dr. Seuss’ birthday.
The National Education Association (NEA) in partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises, celebrates the 18th annual “Read Across America Day” today. It has grown, according to the NEA, into the nation’s largest reading observance with more than 45 million participating. It is sponsored by NEA with Dr. Seuss Enterprises, Random House, and more than 30 national partners.
