Read with the trees and NEA's Read Across America

"NEA’s Read Across America Day is the largest reading event in the nation. More than 50 million kids and adults took part in our 2011 Read Across America Day," according to Connie Boylan (MI) chair of the NEA program.

This year, NEA is partnering with NBC/Universal, Random House and Dr. Seuss Enterprises for the upcoming movie, The Lorax, opening nationwide on March 2. The entire cast of the film (Danny DeVito, Zac Efron, Ed Helms, Taylor Swift and Betty White) will be co-chairs.
