What is your best idea for Read Across America Day?

Traditionally, our school has guest readers come in and read to every grade level. 
This year, we are looking to do much more. I have agreed to be on a committee to 
establish a plan for this year and I'm looking for great ideas, particularly ones 
for the LMC.  I have already compiled a brief list of websites with loads of 
information, but I'm really looking more for creative, or original  ideas that are 
library related.

Here's the website list. Please let me know if you know of other websites that may 
be helpful.

Read Across America website: Ideas and resources.

Dr. Seuss & Read Across America/ Random House
This is dated 2001, but ideas could be adapted for other years. Includes teacherís 
guides, printable games, certificates, and events.


Education World/ Lesson Plans
Education World provides five lessons that can be used on Read Across American Day 
-- or on any other day! Click each of the five lesson headlines below for a 
complete teaching resource.

How to Do Everything/Google
Some fun ideas for celebrating Read Across America Day.  The list could be the 
basis of a letter to parents since ideas are parent/child oriented.
