Each year the National Education Association sponsors Read Across America day in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday. The idea is to encourage caring adults to read to a child. Mother-daughter book clubs are all about reading to children, and today is a great day spend a little time reading your next book selection to your daughter. I’ll be reading Sense and Sensability by Jane Austen to Catherine, and Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates to Madeleine. For more information about the event, visit the NEA’s Web site.
