Read Across America is tomorrow -- March 2.

This United States-wide reading celebration, organized by the National Education Association, takes place annually on March 2 -- Dr. Seuss's birthday.

Enjoy this poem from the folks at Read Across America and in the spirit of Dr. Seuss:

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 2nd
Your own special way
And make this America's
Read to Kids Day.

Then, check out these Dr. Seuss-related activities to help celebrate the day.
