National Read Across America Day is Monday, March 2. The holiday celebrates the importance of reading and the birthday of beloved author Dr. Seuss.
Across America, thousands of schools, community centers, and libraries will participate in the day by reading to groups of children and teenagers. Even if you aren’t involved with these literacy programs, you can still take advantage of the day by picking up a good book or learning about the importance of literacy when it comes to your career.
There’s no shortage of statistics on literacy and its effect on the lives and welfare of people across the world. Still, it’s easy to take the ability to read for granted. Celebrate National Read Across America Day by reading to a child, picking up a good book on leadership, checking out some job search articles here on Movin’ On Up, or even catching up with some of your favorite Dr. Seuss stories.
This year, the book being honored on Read Across America Day is the Seuss classic, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Your job search, education, and career are open paths for you to travel, and you can shape your future by taking proactive steps today. As Dr. Seuss said in his famous book, Oh, The Places You’ll Go!, “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”
