Huntington Learning Center joins teachers, educators, parents, children and others around the country to celebrate Read Across America, the annual reading motivation and awareness program created by the National Education Association (NEA).
Historically, Read Across America Day has been recognized on the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, also known as Dr. Seuss, the beloved children’s author.
The NEA event is now considered a year-round reading program intended to motivate children and teens to read through events, partnerships and reading resources. To celebrate a diverse nation of readers, NEA created the Read Across America 2018-2019 Calendar with recommended books, activities, authors and teaching resources that represent an array of experiences and cultures.
“We are a nation of diverse people and backgrounds, which is what makes our country so special,” says Eileen Huntington of Huntington Learning Center. “Huntington is pleased to celebrate Read Across America and share the NEA’s reading calendar and other resources with students as a way to broaden their horizons and enrich their reading experiences. And of course, at the heart of our celebration is honoring Dr. Seuss, who entertained and inspired readers young and old with his gift of storytelling and making us smile. We proudly recognize Read Across America in his name.”
To encourage children to adopt a regular reading habit, we offer parents these tips:
March includes several other reading and literacy programs, including National Reading Month, Women’s History Month and World Poetry Day (March 21).
