Read Across America Day

A little news on the national scale worth noting: Today is the National Education Association's 14th Annual Read Across America Day. Michelle Obama, Arne Duncan, and a cast of celebrities and other notables will kick off the celebration by reading Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham, in celebration of the Dr.'s 107th birthday. Check out all the pledges from Illinois here and enter in your own pledge telling everyone how you plan to celebrate reading today. (via)
