First lady Melania Trump celebrated National Read a Book Day by sending Dr. Seuss books to schools across the country, the White House announced Wednesday.

"Getting an education is perhaps the most important and wondrous opportunity of your young lives," Trump wrote in a letter to the children.

"I encourage each of you to take advantage of these special years while you are in school. Your education will be a lifelong pursuit that will sustain and carry you far beyond your wildest imagination, if you will let it. Remember, the key to achieving your dreams begins with learning to read. Find what you enjoy, anything that interests you, and read about it. Every page will take you on an exciting journey," the letter continues.

A school in each state will receive 10 books by Dr. Seuss, including the first lady's personal favorite, "Oh, the Places You'll Go!"

The White House said Trump and her son, Barron, have read the book "together over and over."

Trump read the book at a children's hospital in New York in March.
