Today is Read Across America! It's a nationwide celebration of reading, sponsored by the NEA, that's held every year on March 2nd, which is also the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Find out more here.
To celebrate, I'm going to read picture books later today. I also drew this picture of a girl reading to her dog and cat:
It's always interesting to me how drawings turn out when I don't sketch ahead of time, but simply start inking right away. There are a few things I'd change, but mostly I'm happy with how the drawing turned out, and I couldn't resist having her read EWE AND AYE.
I also decided to do a coloring page of this image, in case kids want to color today after they're done reading, or while they're being read to, or in between chapters. Here's how it looks:
