Engage Your Kids with Seussical Activities,, and the NEA Offer Loads of Fun for
Reading and Learning with Dr. Seuss

"You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child." -Dr. Seuss

The theme is green for a very special Read Across America celebration this year. NEA's Read Across America campaign is showcasing The Lorax book as well as NBC/Universal's movie The Lorax. 

Check out tree-themed art, science, and poetry activities in Reading Rockets' The Lorax Family Literacy Bag, all of which are great fun for sharing at home, in the K-2 classroom, a Scout meeting, or an afterschool program. offers additional activity ideas and resources to help you bring Dr. Seuss into the secondary classroom and to celebrate Read Across America with older readers.  Also be sure to check out suggestions for making reading meaningful through public service.

And don't forget the  NEA's Read Across America digital toolkit overflowing with resources and materials to make the most of your own reading party, filled with downlable activities, stickers, poetry, reading sheets, and MORE!

Have fun READING America!
