“You’re never too old, too wacky, or too wild..
to pick up a book and read to a child.”
The National Education Association has teamed up with the cast of The Lorax to bring your children a very special day. March 2 is Read for the Trees and NEA’s Read Across America.
The theme is green for a very special 2012 Read Across America celebration. NEA’s Read Across America campaign will showcase the Lorax book as well as NBC/Universal’s The Lorax (featuring the voices of Taylor Swift, Zach Effron, Danny Devito and Betty White). The film opens nationwide March 2, 2012 and Universal, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, and Random House have joined NEA’s Read Across America, creating new posters and classroom guides for the campaign. Read Across America will also develop new event ideas and materials to help you make this a Seussational celebration.
