Read Across America

Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2—Dr. Seuss’s birthday. The special day did not start until 1998, so I was never a part of the celebration and activities that surround this day when I was in school. When my kids entered preschool, they celebrated the day by reading silly Seuss books, and making Dr. Seuss inspired crafts. I also loved hearing them tell me about the green eggs they had (or didn’t have) for snack! I’m a fan of Dr. Seuss, and so was my son. I remember giggling over There’s a Wocket in My Pocket over and over. My daughter was not as amused at the silly stories as her brother and I. Curious George was more her style.

No matter what books kids prefer, it’s a great idea to set aside a special day to celebrate and motivate kids to read! I love children’s books. The silly ones, as well as the classics. In fact, last month marks my ninth year as an Usborne Books & More consultant. Over the years, I have seen and sold hundreds of books for children. In honor of Read Across America Day, I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorites. I even asked my customers and other Usborne consultants from all over the USA to share with me some of their favorites, so I could in turn, share them with you! I agree with Dr. Seuss – you can never have too many books in your home!
