Classrooms across Milpitas Unified School District were among the thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers celebrating Read Across America this week in honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday on March 2.

Photographed are activities from Rose, Spangler,  Weller, and Zanker elementary schools. In addition, on Thursday  Milpitas High School Art Exploration students visited seven of the District's elementary schools to deliver children's book sculptures and read to 10 classes.

Now in its 20th year, Read Across America (created by the National Education Association) focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources. Continue the celebration of reading and literacy March 2 and every day. For more information, activities, or resources, visit
