HalloweenExpress.com announces it’s 2011 Read Across America Story Contest. Read Across America is a national day celebrating reading. The idea was first created in May 1997 as a way to get children excited about reading. It is celebrated on Dr. Seuss’s Birthday – March 2nd. So on March 2nd, 1998 the largest celebration of reading began. By celebrating Dr. Seuss, the most beloved children’s author, children get the message that reading is important and fun. Read Across America is now celebrated annually on Dr. Seuss’s birthday, March 2nd.
