Hi, I’m [INSERT NAME AND TITLE]

A child’s ability to read has a direct effect on their future success. Reading with your child helps to increase their vocabulary and improves their reading fluency and comprehension.

On March 2nd, we encourage EVERYONE to pick up a book and read to a child.

Whether it’s a beloved classic or something new and exciting, we encourage you to spread the joy of reading.

For more information, visit NEA’s Read Across America site at www.readacrossamerica.org.
