One Book, Two Book, Three


Today, an estimated 45 million people are celebrating the 11th annual Read Across America Day, which is now celebrated annually on or around the birthday of the beloved children's storybook author, Dr. Seuss. It's amazing how much Dr. Seuss absolutely timeless style has influenced generations of readers. I don't know about you, but when I'm traipsing through the bookstore and come across a Dr. Seuss display, I can't help but have a warm, reminiscent smile cross my face. Frozen in time, his bizarre and eccentric characters stare back, and incredibly, they're just as magnificent as the when we were four feet high.

But today isn't just about Dr. Seuss - Read Across America Day is designed to excite enthusiasm for reading, especially amongst children. So let's remind the kids in our lives - whether they're our children or our relatives' kids - just how incredibly important reading is. Reading opens up the universe to children - the vast landscape of imagination and ideas have space to expand into new dimensions and worlds - ones just waiting to be discovered. Besides buying a few of our favorite books for future generations of kids to enjoy, there are some fun activity ideas outlined on the National Education Association website that help kids make reading a favorite pastime and not a chore.

When I was a kid, I loved the gamut of Dr. Suess' books, along with Where the Wild Things Are, and as I got older, the Nancy Drew Series, fairy tales and Archie comic books. I'll never forget those wonderful summer nights beneath the covers with a flashlight...

Thanks to my parents kindling a love of reading when I was a child, I remain an avid reader until this day. In fact, in February I just finished How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents and Gap Creek, the latter of which was so compelling; I had a hard time putting it down. As a 'heads up,' if your eyes are smarting from late night reading (like mine are at the moment), try our Advanced Eye Rescue Formula to get rid of puffiness and dark circles. It works!
Share your favorite books when you were a kid - and tell us what you're doing to make the kids in your life read more... MenScience wants to know what books you recommend - chances are, we'd love to read them too!

I liked Gap Creek as well – what a good book. You might want to read Big Stone Gap by Adriana Trigiani. It is the 1st book in a series of books centering around a woman who is discovering who she is and where she fits in the world. I loved them.
