Read Across Louisiana



On Saturday, February 26th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., LPB and LAE present "Read Across Louisiana" at the Mall of Louisiana in Baton Rouge. Bring the kids out to hear wonderful stories read to them by local celebrities and others. There will also be literacy-related hands-on activities and giveaways. Similar events will be taking place at these locations around the state:

Prien Lake Mall - 496 West Prien Lake Road, Lake Charles
Mall of Acadiana - 5725 Johnston Street, Lafayette
The Louisiana Boardwalk, 540 Boardwalk Blvd., Bossier City
Alexandria Mall - 3437 Masonic Drive, Alexandria
Pecanland Mall - 4700 Milhaven Road #200, Monroe

On Wednesday, March 2nd, LPB and LAE are asking celebrities, teachers, librarians, parents, grandparents – anyone and everyone – to read "The Cat in the Hat" to a class at a school, Head Start, daycare, or at a library. March 2nd is Dr. Seuss's birthday, and we have chosen "The Cat in the Hat" in honor of the new PBS kids' series The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! We have a special Facebook page at Please fill out your pledge to ready today!  We hope you will upload pictures to this page.
Remember – "You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child
