If you have young school age children, there's a good chance that someone read to them in class on Tuesday, perhaps even one of our news anchors, because March 2nd is Read Across America Day.

12 years ago, on the birthday of children's author Dr. Seuss,  the National Education Association created this annual reading motivation and awareness program, because research showed that children who spend more time reading do better in school… it's a simple as that.

Reading to children when they are young is one of the best things adults can do for them.  When being read to, children aren't eating junk food, watching television, playing video games, or surfing the internet.

Because, when being read to, and later when reading to themselves, children are engaging their imaginations.  And the human imagination is responsible for every good and positive development in our history.

The earlier and the more we read to them, the sooner and more likely they are to build a brighter future.   Reading is just that important.

Besides, who could imagine a childhood without Green Eggs and Ham.
