A writer inspired by nature and human nature

Happy “Read Across America Day!” ~Bette A. Stevens https://www.4writersandreaders.com

As writers, we know the importance reading has made in our lives. That is why holidays that support reading for kids are a big deal with me–well, that and the fact I’m also a teacher! In the United States, we celebrate Read Across America Day annually on March 2. This coincides with the birthday of Dr. Seuss, one of the most beloved and iconic children’s writers and perfect for any read-aloud.

Here are some great reading websites for students K-5:

  1. Aesop Fables—no ads
  2. Aesop’s Fables
  3. Audio stories
  4. Childhood Stories
  5. Classic Fairy Tales
  6. Fairy Tales and Fables
  7. Scholastic: Listen/read–Free non-fic audio books
  8. Starfall
  9. Storyline: Stories read by actors
  10. Stories to read for youngsters
  11. Eduplace: Stories to read

  11. Wonderful reminder. I can’t imagine not having a book on the go, think I would panic.
    Going on holiday means …Books … come high on the packing list.
    I admit most travel reading goes on my Kindle as the weight is greatly reduced..



  12. Great resources! I loved this day as a teacher, and we read Dr. Seuss books for a week straight! Bette, you won the drawing through my blog last month, but I must have tried contacting you with an incorrect email address. Please use the “contact” button on my blog to let me know the correct address and whether you’d like the Starbucks or Amazon $5 e-gift card!!!


    • Hi, Becky/ With you all the way on reading to and with the kids…”The Good Doctor” always makes it so much fun… “Oh the Places You’ll Go” is one of my faves that fits perfectly into the end of year school days. Thanks for the awesome gift card notice. I’ll hop over to let you know… Happy Read Across America Day every day! 🙂 xo
