Read Across America: A Very Special Birthday!

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you'll go.”
-Dr. Seuss

Read Across America, Dr. Seuss's nationwide birthday celebration, is Wednesday, March 2! Come celebrate with me! I’ve got a stack of amazing books to donate to BookSpring, an Austin area non-profit that "promotes access to quality, developmentally appropriate print and digital book ownership as a means of developing the lifelong motivation to read and learn."

Tell me your favorite children’s book! For every 3 comments that I receive between here and Facebook, I’ll donate a book from the stack! Now go celebrate your philanthropy AND Dr. Seuss’s birthday: snuggle up and read!

Here’s the list (in order of photo):
Big Red Barn (Margaret Wise Brown), Planting a Rainbow (Lois Ehlert), Giraffes Can’t Dance (Giles Andreae), Twice as Moody (Megan McDonald), Ramona Quimby, Age 8 (Beverly Cleary), I REALLY Like Slop (Mo Willems), Click, Clack, Quackity-Quack (Doreen Cronin), Steam Train, Dream Train (Rinker, Lichtenheld), The Important Book (Margaret Wise Brown), Ribbit! (Rodrigo Folgueira), Thump, Quack, Moo (Doreen Cronin), Splish, Splash, Splat!
