Did you know that today is READ ACROSS AMERICA Day?!
Get ready to grab your hat and read with the Cat in the Hat on Monday, March 3, 2014 for the 17th annual Read Across America Day. The Seussical celebration will kick off a week of reading across the nation as NEA members gather students, parents, and community members together to share their love of reading.
I am heavily involved with my town's library (we have THE best library around) so I was invited to read at the primary school this morning.
However, we got a boat load of snow! And school was cancelled. WAH.
I was assigned a Kindergarten class--and would have been reading The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. (one of my top ten all- time favorite books)
I read to my kiddo a lot when she was young, until about 2nd grade when she felt she wanted to read on her own. More WAH.
My second choices that I thought about reading were Click Clack Moo, Don't let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, Where the Wild Things Are, and Diary of a Fly. Fun books!
Well, that's it for me. I need to go shovel. :-)
Have you ever been involved in Read Across America? Do you (did you) read to your children?
What's YOUR favorite children's book?
