In the words of Dr. Seuss, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
On Wednesday, March 2, in celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday, students at many schools across Williamson County will take part in National Read Across America Day.
The National Education Association (NEA) held the first National Read Across America Day in 1998. According to NEA’s website, National Read Across America Day motivates children to read which in turn, inspires those children to become lifelong readers.
Numerous events are planned this week in the district including appearances by guest readers, character parades and Read Across America pep rallies.
