Join the Nation’s Largest Celebration of Reading

Readers who feel included, recognized, and a part of the world are engaged readers. The titles and resources featured by NEA’s Read Across America calendar include books that students can see themselves reflected in, as well as books that allow readers to see a world or a character that might be different from them. 

Each month, we feature three books—one each for young, middle grade, and young adult readers—plus suggestions for discussions and activities. Winning the 2022 Read Across America Sweepstakes not only brings these books into your classrooms, but also opens new worlds and experiences to your students.
