“Grab your Hat and Read with the Cat"
Saturday, March 2nd is Read Across America day! In 1997, the National Education Association (NEA) urged for a special day to celebrate the joy of literature and reading throughout the United States, particularly for children and young adults. So popular was this idea that it became a nationwide observance held every year on the birthday of Children’s author, Theodore Geissel, best known around the world as Dr. Seuss! Most schools and public libraries will celebrate this event all week long with books, games and activities. Remember, "You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child." ~ Dr. Seuss
