Read Across America Week is a nationwide celebration of reading. The event began in 1997 as a way to get children excited about reading the same way pep rallies are designed to get students excited about the big sporting event.
The week of festivities is held in concert with the celebration of the birthday of Dr. Seuss (March 2, 1904).
The overall goal of the National Education Association when it began the event was to impact student achievement and begin to create a lifelong interest in reading.
