“The imaginations of children across the country are ignited when they open up a good book.” – Dennis Van Roekel, NEA President

Today we celebrate National Read Across America Day!  In observance of Dr. Seuss’ (Theodor Geisel’s) birthday on March 2nd, we unite to spark imagination and creativity in our youth by providing motivation through our online reading program, great books for kids, and much more.

Encouraging children to become lifelong readers is a passion shared by millions of adults, as well as the ultimate passion for all of us here at the Reading Kingdom.

Here’s more about National Read Across America Day from their website:

The National Education Association is building a nation of readers through its signature program, NEA’s Read Across America. Now in its 15th year, this year-round program focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources.

NEA’s Read Across America Day, NEA’s national reading celebration takes place each year on or near March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books, and you can too!”

For children to fully celebrate National Read Across America Day, they must first learn to read!  Our reading program goes beyond antiquated phonics methods, teaching children ages 4-10, including struggling readers, the six skills needed for literacy success.  Read testimonials from thousands of parents and teachers, then click here to sign up for a free 30 day trial of Reading Kingdom!
