PhiLAnthropist: Read Across America for Dr Seuss's Birthday!

Our reporting is free for everyone, but it’s not free to make.
LAist only exists with reader support. If you're in a position to give, your donation powers our reporters and keeps us independent.

Did you know that Monday, March 2nd is Dr. Seuss's Birthday? Did you also know that in his honor the National Education Association hosts Read Across America every year? It's a nationwide reading celebration and schools throughout LA are participating and looking for volunteers to help.

Reading to Kids has a run-down of the times and locations where volunteers are needed to read to kids and get them excited about reading.

Alta Loma Elementary, Gratts Elementary, Hoover Elementary, Politi Elementary, White Elementary, MacArthur Park Primary Center, and White House Place Primary Center will be celebrating Read Across America, and they need your help! They are looking for volunteers to spend a couple of hours reading to kids and helping with their special events
