Read Across America

Read Across America Day

Today, March 2, is Read Across America day, organized by the National Education Association, and celebrated on Dr. Seuss’s birthday. The idea behind it is “for every child to be reading in the company of a caring adult.” Interested students at Northeastern can join organizations like Jumpstart on campus that are devoted to early childhood literacy. At the Library, we have a number of Dr. Seuss books in the Favat Children’s Collection, as well as biographies of the Massachusetts-born writer, and even a government documenta 1943 army piece illustrated by Seuss about the perils of mosquitos!
