It's Read Across America Day and National Reading Month
March is designated as National Reading Month - a month to motivate us to read every day. Reading is fun and has many benefits, regardless of your age. It's a key component of education and professional development. It also has immediate and long-lasting health benefits such as increased cognitive function, memory, vocabulary, empathy and decreased stress levels.
