Get ready for Read Across American Day on March 2. In classrooms up and down California, educators and special guests are lined up to read their favorite books to their students.

The day is sponsored by CTA, NEA and many of the country’s literacy and youth groups. It’s a fun way to celebrate reading, and to encourage your students to read all year long. See CTA’s California Reads teacher-approved book recommendations for all ages. Click here for classroom resources, and connect at #readacrossamerica.
