Reading All Year Long
From booklists to tips for reading out loud, find what you need to inspire students to pick up a book and become lifelong readers.
NEA is committed to celebrating reading and literacy throughout the year by showcasing popular children’s authors and trends in children’s literature. NEA Today, NEA's flagship publication, honors that commitment with News and Features from the World of Reading.

We Need Diverse Books!
NEA's Read Across America is proud to partner with We Need Diverse Books, the collaborative effort by diverse authors and illustrators and literacy advocates to support diversity in children and young adult literature. We participated in their Tumblr and will work with We Need Diverse Books and FirstBook for greater diversity in classroom and school libraries and book lists that celebrate diversity of all kinds. We are revamping our own booklists and finding more for you to share with students. Go to www.weneeddiversebooks.org.
Looking for Books?
If you serve a high needs student population and are in need of books for your reading event, there are organizations that can help. They have books by Dr. Seuss and many of your favorite authors for free or at significant discounts. Find out more about these Read Across partners.
