Children’s books focused on marine animals come to life as The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk spreads out the fun of “Read Across America Day” into a three-day literary celebration. Launched in 1998, Read Across America is the nation’s largest celebration of reading. Although it’s a year-round program, “Read Across America Day” traditionally is celebrated on March 2 – the birthday of the children’s author Dr. Seuss. For the 2020 celebration, The Maritime Aquarium is offering three days of special book readings that launch into related activities. For example, a reading of “Yertle the Turtle” will include activities focused on local terrestrial turtles. Also, special invited guests will read stories, and kids can add conservation pledges to a Truffula Tree as in “The Lorax.” Activities are expected to all be free with Maritime Aquarium admission. Get the whole schedule of activities online.
