Read Across America Day for the year 2022 is celebrated/ observed on Wednesday, March 2.


Read Across America Day is held annually on a school day closest to March 2nd each year. The day promotes reading for children. The popular children’s author Dr. Seuss had his birthday on March 2nd thus original planers of the holiday wanted it to be near his birthday. The National Education Association (NEA) was one of the main backers of this idea to have a special day to promote reading among the population and especially children.


Wednesday, March 2nd is day number 61 of the 2022 calendar year with 2 years, 8 months, 13 days until Read Across America Day 2022.
