Help students find the right book

“If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.”
J.K. Rowling

Getting kids to read may be as simple as finding the right book. For the last several years, the National Education Association’s (NEA) Read Across America literacy program has celebrated a nation of diverse readers. The program incorporates books with diverse characters and authors. This gives all kids the opportunity to find and connect with books that reflect their lives and experiences. 

Throughout the month of March, ISTA will celebrate Read Across America, and you’re invited to the celebration! 

Explore this year’s Read Across America books, resources and curriculum from NEA.


Plan reading events in your classrooms or schools. Make new titles available to students. 

Recommend your favorite books to your students. Share your reading celebrations on social media using the hashtag #ReadAcrossAmerica and tag ISTA. 

Watch ISTA’s social media for our celebrations across the state starting this morning with fourth-graders from Loper Elementary, Shelbyville. More than 100 students will read with Gov. Eric Holcomb and volunteer readers at the Statehouse.
