National Read Across America Day is an annual event that is part of Read Across America, an initiative on reading that was created by the National Education Association.
Each year, National Read Across America Day is celebrated on March 2nd, the birthday of Dr. Seuss. However, if it falls on a weekend, it is observed in the school systems on the school day closest to March 2nd. This national day is about encouraging children in every community across the United States to celebrate reading.
