How do you celebrate reading?

Seven companies and 45 volunteers fanned out across Bergen County on March 2, which was "Read Across America Day,” reading to children at area Head Start programs. The companies, all of which are members of the Northern New Jersey Business Council, included United Water, sigma Group and TD Bank (pictures below).

Read Across America Day coincides annually with Suess’s birthday, March 2, and encourages motivation and awareness about reading. The program was designed to make every child in every community celebrate reading.
