National Read Across America Day: 5 Books Your Kids Will Love
Amaze Your Kids with the Incredible Benefits of Reading
We just celebrated National Read Across America Day last March 2nd. It’s an annual campaign that seeks to encourage children in all parts of the country to pick up their favorite books and get lost in them.
The National Education Association (NEA) created the campaign to promote literacy across the United States. It chose March 2nd as the date for this to honor the birthday of Dr. Seuss, one of the most beloved children’s book authors of all time.
As a parent, you can use the recent celebration of National Read Across America Day to teach your youngsters the importance of reading books regularly. By explaining to them the incredible benefits they’ll get from reading, as listed below, you could be on your way to raising bookworms and future intellects:
- Reading enhances critical thinking skills.
- Reading improves focus and concentration.
- Reading expands vocabulary and language skills.
- Reading helps develop feelings of empathy.
- Reading boosts imagination and creativity.
- Reading extends attention span.
- Reading turns a boring day into an exciting one.

Kids in Serious Health Conditions Need Your Support
While many kids love reading, some are not in the best condition to indulge themselves in the hobby. We’re referring to boys and girls in your community who are bedridden and grappling with serious health conditions.
How about extending them a helping hand? You can easily do that by simply donating any vehicle you no longer need to us at Kids Car Donations.
We’ll sell your donated vehicle through an auction and turn over the proceeds to reputable children’s nonprofit organizations that are in partnership with us. These IRS-registered 501(c)(3) nonprofits provide their young beneficiaries with free comprehensive and quality medical assistance, including solutions and treatments to various pediatric health challenges, emotional support, and relief of pain and trauma. Our charity partners also promote children’s care, advocacy, research, and education.
Your donation will also benefit you in more ways than one. It will entitle you to receive the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season. We’ll also pick up and tow your unwanted vehicle at absolutely no cost to you and wherever you are located in the United States.
The opportunity to give hope and relief to children suffering from serious illnesses and disabilities will also give you a sense of satisfaction that you will long cherish and remember.
