Read Across America is celebrated every year in the first week of March in honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday on March 2. It is a week of fun and festivities to celebrate the joys of reading, bring awareness to the importance of reading in education and motivate kids to be excited about reading a really great book. This year, the elementary libraries and schools are working together to provide students with some fun ways to celebrate the love of reading. Each day will have a fun dress up theme. Other activities are also being planned to celebrate the week.
