Read Across America: February - Explore Families and History

Every Month, NEA's Read Across America highlights books for young readers that explore a topic related to diversity and inclusion.

The theme for February is Explore Families and History.

Students feel more comfortable sharing their own family stories when you look at books together to build awareness about the diversity of families that make up your community.

Here are the recommended books of the month. Find discussion questions and more resources on their website.

Elementary: The Electric Slide and Kai by Kelly J. Baptist

Middle Grade: Loretta Little Looks Back: Three Voices Go Tell It by Andrea Davis Pinkney
