Every year the National Education Association brings us Read Across America Day to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday on March 2nd. This year there are several ways to participate in all the reading fun. Many branches of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System will be hosting activities throughout the week, and you can also check out Seussville, an online resource page featuring a teacher's guide, activities, games and much more!
And don't forget you can always make your own family fun at home by checking out materials from your local library. Check the AFPLS catalog for books, videos and audiobooks featuring all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters. Or check out this family "literacy bag" of activities for the story Green Eggs and Ham, brought to you by the organization, Reading Rockets.
Parents and children can visit the Read Across America pledge site and make their promise to get reading!
