Read Across America
February 24, 2014
This year marks the 17th annual Read Across America celebration in honor of the famed Dr. Seuss's Birthday and to promote the love of reading! Motivating children to read is an important factor in student achievement and creating successful, lifelong readers. Research shows us that children who are driven to spend more time reading for pleasure perform better in school. And who better to inspire kids to want to read than the true master of non-sense and whimsey himself.... Dr. Seuss!
March 2nd marks the 110th birthday of Theodore Seuss Geisel, and in celebration of the love of reading, the Library will be hosting a wide variety of events during that week, including special musical events by Dino O'Dell. And don't forget to check out your favorite Dr. Seuss books & videos and share them with your family and friends (I will certainly be reading my favorite... I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!). Also, check out all the fun online and printable activities, free from Seussville web.
So Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss, and here's wishing for many successfull readers to come!
