What is Read Across America Day?
What is Read Across America Day?
Read Across America Day began in 1997. The National Education Association pushed to have a special day to encourage reading across the United States, particularly in school-aged children. The first Read Across America Day was held on March 2, 1998 (originally because it was the same day as Dr. Seuss’s birthday). It is celebrated on the closest weekday to this date in schools across the country, or for that whole week.
Literacy and engagement with reading are encouraged in children. This is really important and not just so that children succeed in English language arts; boosting literacy improves performance in other subjects. Young readers will develop their communication, well-being, and become lifelong learners.
