After donating 14,000 Scholastic books to the Nashville Public Library, Taylor Swift is now starring in a new Read Across America PSA with her co-stars in 'Dr. Seuss' The Lorax.'

The National Education Association has enlisted Taylor, Zac Efron, Danny Devito, Ed Helms and Betty White to champion the special day in which children and adults alike are encouraged to read.

The cast members took turns reciting a poem that says: "You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child. In schools and communities let's gather around. Let's pick up a book. Let's pass it around. There are kids all around you, kids who will need someone to hug, someone to read. So join in the fun in your own special way. Read across America with Dr. Seuss and the NEA."

Read Across America Day will take place on March 2, which is the same day that 'The Lorax' opens in theaters.
