NEA’s Read Across America

NEA’s Read Across America is a national reading celebration that takes place every October. It is an effort to encourage children to read and to celebrate the joy of reading.

In 1990, NEA created Read Across America as a way to encourage children to read. The program encourages students to read books in all different formats and to share the love of reading with others.

One way that NEA encourages students to read is by awarding book tokens to students who read the most during the month of October. Book tokens can be used to purchase books, books online, or books in the local library.

NEA also encourages students to participate in events and programs related to Read Across America. Events can include book rallies, reading contests, and book signings. Programs can include literacy workshops, book clubs, and storytime.
