It's Dr. Seuss Read Across America Day today. For a similar reason as described above--though from a different angle--I don't like this day, either. We're trying to encourage youngsters upward in their reading, and I wonder if this encourages downward instead. I loved Dr. Seuss when my own children were 5. But I don't want to go to a college graduation and hear a young adult admonishing his/her class mates with Oh, the places you'll go.
