Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

The literacy world is preparing for the nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2—Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Read Across America, a National Education Association event, seeks to motivate children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources.

Raising A Reader program coordinators and volunteers will visit classrooms in both San Francisco and Alameda counties to share the love of reading.
