READ ACROSS AMERICA DAY

Today is Read Across America Day. This day, which also happens to be Dr. Seuss' birthday, promotes a love for reading in children across our nation. As an educator, I heavily promote this day, but as adults, I believe we put reading on the back burner.

We scroll through emails, news feeds, and text messages, but when was the last time you sat down and enjoyed a good book? We instill the importance of literacy in our youth without being examples of readers ourselves.

Some benefits of reading as adults include: mental stimulation, increased knowledge, improved focus, stress reduction, and free entertainment. Lately I have been enjoying audio books on my morning commute, which although not technically reading, still allows me to get creatively lost in someone else's words and often leaves me inspired.
