Students across Hampton Roads will join millions of children across the country to celebrate the 18th annual National Education Association’s Read Across America Day.

Read Across America is a reading awareness program created to motivate children in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of famous children’s author Dr. Seuss.

NewsChannel 3 reporter Erica Greenway visited the Adult Learning Center, where people are learning English as a second language.

Anchor Kristen Crowley visited Sewell’s Point Elementary School to read to the children.

The program is the largest reading celebration in America and expects more than 45 million readers of all ages to pick up a book and read.

Take the pledge here!
