The National Education Association is celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday by hosting its annual Read Across America event and calling for every child to read in the company of a caring adult.

The popular children’s author would have been 105 years old today.

I urge parents and grandparents to read to their children today and every day, whether it’s a whimsical book by Dr. Seuss or someone else.

And with today’s emphasis on reading, I thought it would be a good time to remind everyone about a partnership between UT Professional & Personal Development and the Institute of Reading Development.

We offer summer reading programs for children ranging from reading comprehension and fluency to speed reading and study skills.

Our programs will turn poor readers into good readers, and good readers into great readers.

Before I end today’s post, I want to share a few Seuss resources for your enjoyment: Seussville (interactive games, contests, and information for kids), Dr. Seuss National Memorial and The Art of Dr. Seuss.
