When I was teaching, Dr. Seuss week was one of my favorite times of the year. We’d take a break for our everyday routine to read, read, read. Guest speakers were invited, doors were decorated and everyone had silly socks.

But sometimes it seemed like a task to overcome! Even at home – we are already busy. Adding another project for Read Across America seems like a lot.
