National Read Across America Day

National Read Across America Day is celebrated each year on March 2nd in the United States. In 1998, the day was established by the National Education Association in an effort to make reading more fun for children across the nation. Every year, students, teachers, and parents make an effort to make reading more exciting and more interactive for children.
