Sylvan Dell Publishing offers ebooks for free on March 2nd

What better way to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday than reading to a child? March 2nd is Read Across America Day. Now in its 15th year, this year-round program focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources. NEA’s national reading celebration takes place each year on or near March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss and the 2012 theme is green with the debut of NBC/ Universal's The Lorax. But Random House and the National Education Association aren't the only ones urging you to participate and read to a child.

Sylvan Dell Publishing will be participating in Read Across America Day by offering all of its award-winning eBooks FREE to read at www.sylvandellpublishing.com on March 2.  Participants will have access to Sylvan Dell’s full eBook Site License including eBooks with auto-flip, auto-read, and selectable English and Spanish text and audio. This is in addition to the free activities available every day including a “For Creative Minds” educational section, 40-70 pages of free teaching activities, three quizzes, and a related websites page for each title.

Sylvan Dell co-owner and editor Donna German states, “We are proud to offer children a simple way to participate in Read Across America Day.  By offering our full eBook Site License we also make it easy not only for children to read and explore our great books, but we make it easy for parents and teachers to use each book as a stepping stone to learning with our “For Creative Minds” section and our free teaching activities.”
