Celebrating RAA Week with Some of Our Favorite Reads

Published: March 03, 2022

Launched in 1998 by the National Education Association (NEA), Read Across America is the nation's largest celebration of reading. This year-round program focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources that are about everyone, for everyone. While the program celebrates reading all year long, they host a special Read Across America Week at the beginning of March.
