Starting on March 2, students nationwide will celebrate Read Across America with a weeklong celebration of reading and activities. It begins on beloved author Dr. Seuss’ birthday and commemorates his impact on the world through books. The National Education Association’s goal during this week and throughout the rest of the month is to promote knowledge and inclusivity to young children. Getting involved is simple and starts at home by browsing recommended titles and reading to your child. You can also check your child’s school or local library to see what titles, activities or events they promote. 

Branson Stowell joins Olivia Horton to share top picks for all ages to prepare for Read Across America Week with picks from BestReviews expert, Librarian Ciera Pasturel.
