Read Across America: August - Create a Better World


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

The theme for August is Create a Better World.

Encourage children to imagine the world as the kind of place they want it to be and give them the opportunity to try their ideas to effect change.

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