Today on Emmet Street, we’re celebrating National Read Across America Day. This day was started back in 1997 by the National Education Association (NEA) to encourage children to read. It coincides with the birthday of Dr. Seuss, one of my favorite authors.
To celebrate, I’m turning off the television, curling up under a warm blanket and immersing myself in the final book of the Divergent trilogy, Allegiant. I can’t wait to find out how it ends! No spoilers!
Looking for your next read? We wax poetic about the magic of books quite often on Emmet Street. Check out some of our past posts for ideas:
