The National Education Association is excited to bring you Read Across America year-round to help you motivate kids to read, bring the joys of reading to students of all ages, and make all children feel valued and welcome.
The titles and resources featured by NEA’s Read Across America 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 than them.
Readers who feel included, recognized, and a part of the world are engaged readers. We hope that you’ll be able to share these recommended titles—and many others—to celebrate Read Across America in March and throughout the year. We invite you to:
It’s as easy as A-B-C, 1-2-3 to plan for Read Across America Day in March and get involved in year-round reading fun in your community. Check out our activity ideas, tips for guest readers, and new, downloadable logo and artwork!
NEA’s Read Across America has a new logo, available to NEA members and Association staff to help promote and plan their events. Download the logo, along with our usage guidelines here.

How would you feel if you saw even your most reluctant readers curled up with a great book, eager to find out what happens and talk about it with you or a peer? Impossible you say? Not so.
