Launched in 1998 by the NEA (National Education Association), Read Across America is the nation’s largest annual reading celebration. This year-round program focuses on helping children and teens to discover the joy of reading through events, book clubs, and reading resources that are about everyone, for everyone. At Wonderbly, we love to celebrate Read Across America by helping any child become the hero of their own book.
Read Across America Day is on March 2nd 2022. The theme for March’s national reading month is Play With Stories.
We have over 40 different books for children from 0 to 12. Our nursery books are the perfect first book for babies, full of bright drawings and simple read-aloud rhymes. Our age 0 to 3 range includes early years learning books, to help toddlers learn their alphabet and numbers. Our books for age 3 to 6 include imagination-boosting picture books full of curious characters – perfect for elementary school children. And our 6+ children’s books are great for middle-grade readers and young adults, with more challenging words, courageous adventures and non-fiction titles.
A study of children aged 9 to 10 showed that when they were given personalized stories to read, their reading comprehension scores improved by more than 40%. Yes – 40%! The researchers concluded that the personal relevance made the texts more interesting, more relatable, and – most importantly – more enjoyable. And that’s what it’s really all about, isn’t it? Celebrating the joy of reading. You can read more about the benefits of personalized books here.
Not just yet… but we’re working on it! Our books are personalized with a child’s name and character, and we print each one as a special, one-off edition. But do follow our social media channels to see when we might be hitting a bookstore near you.
All our books are printed and shipped from the USA, and we deliver all across the country – from Washington, DC to Walnut Creek, CA! Even during the pandemic, we are doing everything we can to make sure your gift arrives safely and we are continuing to deliver as normal.
