March 2, 2017 is the NEA’s 20th annual Read Across America Day—also known as Dr. Seuss’s birthday!

This special day is a nationwide initiative designed to encourage kids to read, but it also serves as a reminder to ALL of us that reading is important!

Here in the Natural Selections Gift Shop, our shelves have been freshly stocked with over 250 new books, just in time to celebrate the joy of reading! From turtles to Tyrannosaurus rex, rainforests to rock collecting: we’ve got titles for the young…and young at heart!

As a zoo committed to education, we understand the critical role that reading plays in learning, and we try to encourage the practice year-round. That said, we hope you take a few minutes to read tomorrow—both to your kids and for yourself! Who knows, it might just become a habit! ;)

Read Across America Poem

You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild,
To pick up a book and read with a child.
You’re never too busy, too cool, or too hot,
To pick up a book and share what you’ve got.

In schools and communities,
Let’s gather around,
Let’s pick up a book,
Let’s pass it around.

There are kids all around you,
Kids who will need
Someone to hug,
Someone to read.

Come join us March 2nd
Your own special way
And make this America’s
Read to Kids Day.

-Anita Merina, NEA
