international and National Events and holidays happening on 2 March

Read Across America Day

Read Across America takes place annually on March 2nd. The purpose of Read Across America Day is to encourage children in every community to read and also encourage parents and teachers to celebrate the joy of reading. It’s has been celebrated since 2 March  1998 and takes place on the same day as the anniversary of the birth of children’s book author Dr. Seuss.

This holiday can be traced back to May of 1997, when a group of people at the National Education Association (NEA) decided to create a day of the year that celebratesd and promoted reading among children. They thought that since many school football programs can get children engaged in the sport through pep rallies, why not do the same thing for reading? So they decided to advocate for a Read Across America program.
