Patricia Loves NEA’S Read Across America

Patricia started reading at the age of 4, and read a book a day from that point on. Reading is so important for learning and engaging students in life. When children read they use their imaginations and are taken to places that they might not be able to go in their real life.

“From a child’s first foray into the depths of a story to an adult’s escape into a world of words, reading plays an integral role in our lives.” — President Barack Obama

The National Education Association is building a nation of readers through its signature program, NEA’s Read Across America. Now in its 19th year, this year-round program focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources.
