Ready. Set. Read! It’s Read Across America Day
Tuesday, March 2nd, 2022—In honor of National Read Across America Day, we encourage all of our Atoms and their families to find time today (this week or month) to read a good book. Below are some fun facts about reading that may surprise you.
- Reading is a great Stress Reliever - Studies show that reading reduces stress by 68%
- It all adds up - Reading just 20 minutes a day adds up to reading 1,800,000 words per year
- The fastest way to build vocabulary - Children learn 4,000–12,000 words every year by reading
Dr. Seuss said it the best, "The more that you read, the more things you'll know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go!"
We hope everyone can find time to pick up a book and celebrate National Read Across America Day.
