Portland plans to recognize "Read Across America Day"

PORTLAND, Maine -- Portland’s celebration of Read Across America Day will have special meaning,as it becomes the first community in Northern New England to join the nationwide campaign for grade-­level reading.

This year's Read Across America Day will mark Dr. Seuss's birthday. The event focuses on the importance of reading aloud with children even just 15 minutes a day.

Schools including Ocean Avenue, East End, Lyseth, and Hall (and maybe others) will surround Dr. Seuss's birthday with guest readers coming into  classrooms this week and next.
