Read Every Region: A Read Across America Challenge

It’s Read Across America Week! Novel Effect is here to help you celebrate little learner’s freedom to read, learn, grow, and dream through access to books. To get you in the read-aloud spirit, we’ve curated a selection of stories and a tracking sheet printable. Are you up for the Read Across America challenge?

A Read Across America Challenge

We might’ve taken the phrase “Read Across America” a bit too literally this year 😆. 

Celebrate this literary occasion with our read aloud map. There are books for every region of the United States, so you can read from sea to shining sea. Keep track of your reading travels with our book tracking map.  A class of budding readers or at home with kids, they’ll love reading across the country. 

Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find something to expand your horizons and instill a love of reading in your little reader.
