“Every year on NEA’s Read Across America Day, the imaginations of children across the country are ignited when they open up a good book,” said NEA President Lily Eskelsen García.
NEA members and schools across the nation host school and community events on March 2nd designed to pay homage to the beloved children’s book author and get young people excited about reading.
“While we take a fun and lighthearted approach to our Read Across America celebrations, we do so with a serious purpose in mind: to encourage a love of reading,” added Eskelsen García. “As educators, we know that students who read—and are read to—do better in school and in life."
