Hello!  I just received the following email about Read Across America resources.  Read Across America is the largest national reading event and occurs annually on March 2nd (Dr. Seuss' birthday).  I noticed that the following resources don't include the NEA website, you may want to check it out too: http://www.nea.org/grants/886.htm.

NEA's annual Read Across America celebration is a great opportunity for toddlers, teens and everyone in between to celebrate their literacy and language skills and the joys of reading. AdLit.org  (http://www.adlit.org/) offers new activity ideas and resources  (http://www.adlit.org/article/35649) for bringing Dr. Seuss into the secondary classroom, celebrating Read Across America with older readers, and making the day more meaningful with service. At Reading Rockets  (http://www.readingrockets.org/calendar/readacross) , you can send an e-card  (http://www.readingrockets.org/books/fun/ecards) to your favorite readers and get them excited about this special day of reading, learn more about how Dr. Seuss has influenced other authors and illustrators, and find good books to put on the menu for March 2nd.
