Philadelphia Local members once again volunteered for the National Educational Association’s Read Across America Day. The annual event is part of the organization’s mission to motivate children to become lifelong readers and strengthen their literacy skills.

In observance of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, members read books from the beloved children’s author aloud to students at Saint Barnabas School on Feb. 28 and Sharon Hill School on March 5.

Read Across America began in 1998 to bring America “under one hat” for an explosion of reading excitement. The yearly event helps remind everyone of the importance of reading and establishes reading habits for children.
