Grab Your Hat and Read with the Cat! The National Education Association is calling America's children, both young and old, to reward their learning by celebrating the joys of reading on Dr. Seuss's birthday. On March 2, tip your hat to Dr. Seuss and celebrate his newly discovered book, What Pet Should I Get? with creative acts of reading and learning for students of all ages. How will you help create a nation of readers? Take the Read Across Pledge, and share your plans for celebrating Read Across America Day.
