March 2 is READ ACROSS AMERICA Day.
I love to read! I have always loved books and reading. I enjoy fiction and nonfiction. I like to learn. I like to imagine. I really like to get lost in a good story as it comes to life on the pages of a book.
March 2 is also Dr. Seuss’ birthday. He’s the famous children’s author known for such books as Green Eggs & Ham, The Cat in the Hat and, of course, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.
In 1998, an organization known as the National Education Association (NEA) decided to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss by encouraging parents, students and educators to participate in the very first Read Across America Day.
Every year since then, events are held at schools and libraries across the country in the hopes of encouraging kids to read. I have often read my favorite Dr. Seuss books in classrooms and libraries on March 2. When kids get excited about a story, they get excited about reading. And that is good for everyone.
Not surprising, my very favorite book is my own, which I published in the fall of 2015: It Never, Ever Snows in Florida.
My favorite Dr. Seuss book is Oh Say, Can You Say, What’s the Weather Today? I have several favorite books about weather which I have read to children over the years. If you are looking for a fun (and sometimes educational, but sometimes just fun) weather story to share with kids, take a look at my list of favorites below:
I will add to this list so check back often for updates!
