Read Across America Poem
You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild,
To pick up a book and read with a child.
You’re never too busy, too cool, or too hot,
To pick up a book and share what you’ve got.
In schools and communities,
Let’s gather around,
Let’s pick up a book,
Let’s pass it around.
There are kids all around you,
Kids who will need
Someone to hug,
Someone to read.
Come join us March 2nd
Your own special way
And make this America’s
Read to Kids Day.
To get kids excited about reading the NEA (National Education Association), will hold its annual Read Across America day on March 2. Let’s mark that day on our calenders and gather around and read with a child. Whether it is our own children, grandchildren or even our neighbor’s kids lets get ready to celebrate the joy of reading.
Don’t forget to take pictures. We would love to have you share them with us.
You can find activities here to help you celebrate.
