2024 MARCH READ ACROSS AMERICA MONTH

MARCH IS READ ACROSS AMERICA MONTH

This year,  educators and parents are encouraged to highlight the importance and fun of reading diverse and inclusive books. Discovering books with different perspectives helps kids find out what others believe and how they feel, as well as to see themselves in the books that they’re reading. When we provide readers with opportunities to broaden their perspectives, it opens up the door to creating a better and more inclusive world.

Here are some suggested books for KIDS and ADULTS, STATE BY STATE ACROSS THE COUNTRY . . .
