National Read Across America Day

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”

“I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny, but we can have lots of good fun that is funny.”

“I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Sam-I-Am.”

We have all heard these magical, inspiring words before. When Theodor Suess Geisel first put pen to paper, he created something wonderful. Today marks the 111th anniversary of the birth of Dr. Suess.

March 2nd of every year is recognized as National Read Across America Day, also known as “Dr. Suess Day”. On this day, children everywhere in schools are encouraged to pick up a book – any book – and read.

This national holiday, however, should not only be extended to children. This is why the staff at Tapestry Books encourages everyone to spend 15 minutes (or more!) reading today, whether it be a Tapestry Book, chapter book, picture book, or children’s book

Check out Tapestry Books for great books to read! You can also buy Dr. Suess’s books on Tapestry Books!
