Doraville, GA, February 22, 2017 – Contributed by Debra J. Mines, Reading/Writing Specialist – Those who are six years old, sixteen, sixty-four, and more have all kinds of great events in store for the National Education Association’s nineteenth annual observance of Read Across America. NEA is calling America’s children, both young and old, to reward their learning by celebrating the joys of reading on Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Readers of all ages are encouraged to celebrate with us.
