Thanks, Trish at Inspiration Laboratories, for inspiring us with an awesome list of activities for toddlers. Inspiration Laboratories is celebrating Read Across America Day (set annually on Dr. Seuss's birthday, March 2nd) by designing toddler games that support math, science, and imaginative skills in a fun way.
The National Education Association (NEA) established Read Across American Day (RAAD) in 1997 with the aim of bringing the joy of reading to every child in all communities—not only on Dr. Seuss's birthday, but on every day of the year. They offer support for this goal through schools, libraries, churches, community centers, and parental advice. "Motivating children to read is an important factor in student achievement and creating lifelong successful readers," the NEA suggests, since "research has shown that children who are motivated and spend more time reading do better in school."
