On March 2nd, Zac Efron celebrated Read Across America Day by reading Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax” to 300 students. The kids congregated at the New York Public Library to hear Efron voice the tale of the Once-ler’s journey in one of Dr. Seuss’ most popular stories.

The day the reading took place was marked by some very special occurrences. “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax” opened at No. 1 at the box office and it marked the 108th birthday of Theodore Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss). Over the past weekend the film raked in $70.7 million.

Efron, who voices Ted in the movie, was thrilled to be a part of the Read Across America Day event hosted by the National Education Association. He told The Press Association, “As a kid, I remember thinking, ‘What would it be like to go on this big adventure and learn what the Once-ler knows?’ Now here I am, two decades later, voicing Ted in Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax.”

He was joined by his co-star Danny DeVito at the New York Public Library reading. Prior to the event he joined his other co-stars, Taylor Swift, Ed Helms, Danny DeVito and Betty White, to create a PSA for the NEA’s Read Across America event.

Efron said it was an honour to work with the National Education Association’s Read Across America event because he was able to help “inspire the love of reading in millions of kids.”

Efron’s co-star Danny DeVito joined him a the reading in support of NEA’s literacy campaign.
