March is designated in the U.S.A. as National Reading Month to honor the legacy of Dr. Suess and his birthday. This action was taken originally to focus on children and reading with and to them. This action of shared reading aloud is extremely important and establishes one of the most important skills all children need in reading, as well as opening them to one of the best joys in life–imagination through books.
I consider reading to be not only a wonderful skill but also one of the greatest pleasures in life. I have been an avid reader for almost as long as I can remember. The act of reading fills me with joy, with journeys into other worlds, and with knowledge.
Please find the time to read. If you can, read to a child or children, to other adults, or simply read for yourself.
