Next Friday, March 1st, is Read Across America Day and there are many ways to share the love of reading with youth in the Las Vegas Valley!  Check out these opportunities:

“Seussical” Ooblick  with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Las Vegas at First Friday

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas volunteer program presents a Dr. Seuss Birthday Celebration activity and informational booth for First Friday of Las Vegas. The booth’s purpose is to educate the community on ways to become involved with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas as well as be introduced to our arts program. During the First Friday activity families and volunteers will have the ability to create Ooblick in a very “Seussical” science activity, as well as hosting a corner area where volunteers and children will be encouraged to read the stories of Dr.Seuss with a microphone in honor of his birthday month.  Come out and participate in the event at 7:00 pm in the Kids’ Corner First Friday pavilion.

The National Education Association’s year-round program focused on motivating children and teens to read is celebrating its thirteenth year on March 2, 2012.  Not only is this Dr. Suess’s birthday, it is also the release date of the animated film based on his book, The Lorax, which teaches children and adults alike about the power of conservation. Help young people retain this message and many others by becoming a mentor!
