Read Captions Across America

Welcome to the Read Captions Across America Site!

You’ve landed in the online home of the DCMP’s Read Captions Across America (RCAA) campaign, held in conjunction with the National Education Association’s (NEA) Read Across America event every year on or around March 2, the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss.

The purpose of RCAA is to raise awareness—particularly among children and their parents and teachers—that video-based media can be just as effective at encouraging and fostering reading skills as books, as long as captions are always turned on!
