    Delta Dental of Massachusetts employees this month are celebrating the importance of reading and helping mark 20 years of the National Education Association's (NEA) Read Across America Day.
    NEA's Read Across America Day, which celebrates Dr. Seuss's birthday and the joys of reading, expects more than 45 million readers, both young and old, to pick up a book and read this year as part of the initiative.
    To help make reading fun and underscore how fundamental it is for everyone, Delta Dental employees are visiting schools in Sudbury, Charlestown , Medford and Boston, as well as Windham, N.H., to read a children’s book about taking care of your teeth. This year, we chose three fun books: Throw Your Tooth on the Roof by Selby B. Beeler, The Tooth Book by Edward Miller, and Open Wide by Laurie Keller.
    Our goal is to motivate children to enjoy reading and take care of their teeth and gums in a fun way, to ultimately create a nation of thoughtful readers and well-informed health care consumers.
    For more information and additional free resources for NEA's Read Across America literacy program, visit www.nea.org/readacross and www.readacrossamerica.org.
