Read Across America

read across americaEach year libraries and schools celebrate Read Across America on or about March 1 – Dr. Suess’s Birthday.  Hay Springs School will celebrate on Thursday, March 7th. However, you can start the celebration early by reading to a child on March 1st.  The National Education Association estimates that more than 40 million children and adults will celebrate the joy of reading this year.  Join the celebration and read to a child.  Share a favorite book from your childhood, read a new book, or re-read a family favorite.

Read Across America

You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild,
To pick up a book and read with a child.
You’re never too busy, too cool, or too hot,
To pick up a book and share what you’ve got.

In schools and communities,
Let’s gather around,
Let’s pick up a book,
Let’s pass it around.

There are kids all around you,
Kids who will need
Someone to hug,
Someone to read.

Come join us March 7th
Your own special way
And make this America’s
Read to Kids Day.
