Every year, the National Educational Association (NEA) celebrates Dr. Suess's birthday with a campaign called Read Across America. I love this holiday because it is pure fun. Dr. Seuss was (and is) a much-loved children's author and a talented cartoonist and there is nothing more Seuss-tastic than getting together and reading a book to honor his birthday. For this celebration, the NEA offers many ideas for schools, libraries, and parents to institute fun reading events in local and online communities.
Some of the ideas/ events include:
Send an ecard
Facebook fan page
Send a video to schooltube or youtube
A list of 13 Suess-gestions if you get stuck
