The Mathical Book Prize partnered with the San Bernardino City Unified School District in southern California and DC Public Schools in Washington, DC to celebrate National Read Across America Day on March 2, 2022.
With an emphasis on multicultural and multilingual titles this year, authors Jen Arena (Marta! Big and Small, a 2022 Mathical Honor Book for ages 2-4), Ana Crespo (Lia & Luís: Who Has More?, a 2021 Mathical Award Winner for ages 2-4), and Traci Sorell (Classified: The Secret Career of Mary Golda Ross, Cherokee Aerospace Engineer, a 2022 Mathical Honor Book for Grades 3-5) joined online programs for libraries and classrooms in both districts.
Launched in 1998 by the National Education Association (NEA) and guided by a committee of educators, NEA’s Read Across America is the nation’s largest celebration of reading. Learn more about this event from NEA. →
