Today is March 2, otherwise known as Read Across America Day.

Throughout the country, parents, teachers and others will take time out of their day to read a book and help foster a love of literature.

The "official" selected reading is the Dr. Seuss classic "Oh the Places You'll Go!"

But if you are inspired to do a little extra credit reading, we've got some suggestions from Mara Alpert, children's librarian at the LA Public Library.
