We Can with Two Rules-Read

Posted by Brenda Yoho

In "Lead with Two Rules: Feeling Good & Feeling Safe," I emphasize the paramount importance of reading. It's a cornerstone of our lives, profoundly impacting us all. As we approach two significant reading celebrations, March 2nd marks Dr. Seuss's birthday and Read Across America Day. Initiated by the National Education Association in 1998, it's a tribute to Dr. Seuss's monumental influence on literature. This extends to Read Across America Week and Month, fostering a culture of reading. Additionally, March 7th marks World Book Day, further highlighting the significance of reading. Throughout March, efforts to cultivate a love for reading, especially among children, are paramount. Whether through dressing up as beloved characters or engaging in communal reading, the goal remains the same: to foster a community of readers. Guest readers play a vital role, showcasing the joy of reading to children. Moreover, facilitating discussions about reading material nurtures comprehension and community cohesion. Despite differing reading levels, the shared aspiration to belong to a literary community unites us. Ultimately, by collaborating towards a common goal, we collectively enhance our reading skills and appreciation.


In my book, I talk about how we did an all school reading day. I suggest all schools work to make this happen for their staff, students, families and community. When everyone is involved, great things happen. Helping children build their skills and to build a personal library at home, helps to instill in them the gifts reading brings to our lives.
