It’s Read Across America Day! The event is held in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday, March 2. The National Education Association has sponsored this event every year for the past eleven years, with this being the twelfth year of the program which focuses on motivating children to read and to master basic skills. While we don’t focus much on the celebration in high schools where, ideally, most of our patrons are already skillful readers, please consider reading to a younger sibling or friend today. The event asks that every child read today in the company of a caring adult, or perhaps a caring teen. If you have an interesting story about someone who helped you learn to read, or promoted your love of reading, i. e. made you into the Blatant Bibliophile that you are today, why not post a comment on the blog?
