Read Across America Week/ Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! ~ March 2nd – March 6th

By Hook Or By Book


You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.

~ Dr. Seuss ~

 Read Across America week, appropriately kicks off today, on Theodor Geisel’s birthday. Started in 1997 by the National Education Association, this observance promotes reading, particularly for children and young adults. It’s widely celebrated in schools, libraries and community centers across the country. To find out more, please visit:

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

      He was well ahead of his time. I dearly wish I’d grown up learning to read with his books instead of Dick and Jane. I would have been a real reader instead of a struggling reader.

    It’s interesting to find “One Hundred Dresses” on the diversity list. I read that as a child and of course have no memory of why it is on the list. Do you know?

  5. Terrific reblog, Jennie
