Friday is the National Education Association's Read Across America.

It's set up to motivate kids. March 2 also happens to be Dr. Seuss' birthday.

The beloved children's author gives kids at a young age, the chance to read along and learn. And the books are perfect for first graders at Dixie Bee Elementary School!

"The Dr. Seuss books are great books for first graders so we've had a really great week dressing up and doing different theme days for Dr. Seuss and I think it's really great to have partners in education with Ivy Tech and get the community involved in such a great event with the boys and girls," said Deborah Myers at Dixie Bee Elementary.

The National Education Association offers tips year round to get kids interested in reading. Just click here for more information.
