“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child.”
Dr. Seuss had it right when he concluded that there is no age restriction on sitting down with a child and sharing a story. No matter the age, the mind thrives on imagination and information – Oh, the Thinks you can Think! This is why the NEA enacted the Read Across America (RAA) program, celebrating its 20th year, on Dr. Seuss’ birthday – March 2nd. The program is intended to motivate everyone, young and old, to read more by organizing local events and offering a smorgasbord of resources to make reading as easy as One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish!
