Reading with your child helps to increase their vocabulary and improves their reading fluency and comprehension. NEA’s Read Across America began in 1998 as a way to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Seuss by encouraging children to read. Since its creation, educators, parents, caregivers, and students have embraced Read Across America and helped to turn it into the largest reading celebration. On March 1, the Cumberland County School System celebrated Read Across America and encouraged EVERYONE to pick up a book and read to a child. For more information, please visit National Education Association Read Across America.
