Read Across America

Happy Read Across America Day! 
Every year Dr. Seuss’s birthday is marked by the NationalEducation Association’s Read Across America Event. This year’s theme book is The Lorax, highlighted in conjuction with the feature film version of that title. If you’re a fan of the Lorax (or have yet to be introduced to this eco-minded creature) I’m sure you’d enjoy celebrating by reading it with a child (or a group). But you don’t have to love the Lorax or even Seuss to be a part of this worthwhile event. Read Across America is an annual recognition of NEA’s year-round goal of encouraging and motivating young readers. Whether you choose a book you love or explore a new interest, read a treasured classic or a noteworthy newbie, reading with a child is a wonderful opportunity for spending time together and cultivating a love of reading. Take the pledge at the NEA homepage or the facebook cause page and get reading!

If you want to take advantage of the Seuss theme, here are some fun resources to go along with the celebration:

Other good reading resources outside the Seuss-sphere include:

Any special celebration plans? Anyone going to see The Lorax in theaters this weekend? The Lorax has some pretty complex themes of ecology and responsible production, but B has been captivated by it since he was about 3 ½. Do you think there’s a “right” age for The Lorax?
