Read Across America Day

In 1997, The National Education Association established March 2 as an annual day to motivate children across the country to read, in honor of perhaps the most beloved children’s author ever!

From “The Cat in the Hat” and “Green Eggs and Ham” to Aunt Annie’s alligator and the zizzer-zazzer-zuzz—millions of children have been taught to read by Theodor Seuss Geisel, popularly known as Dr. Suess!

But did you know—when Museum of the Bible opens later this year, families will experience the Book of all books as never before!
Children can “walk on water” like the disciple Peter or “push the pillars” like Samson.

Familiar stories read by children over the decades will come to life! And families who’ve never read the Bible will discover the influence the Bible has had in their lives—in every sphere imaginable!
