Celebrate NEA's Read Across America: Lessons for Grades K-5

Each March, NEA’s Read Across America provides the perfect opportunity to include LGBT-relevant, developmentally appropriate literature in lessons. To assist you in doing so, GLSEN prepared this special toolkit for use during NEA’s Read Across America or any other day. It provides sample discussion guides for guest readers, teachers or librarians that can help you include the following selected titles: 

  • And Tango Makes Three
  • Antonio’s Card/La Tarjeta de Antonio 
  • Chrysanthemum 
  • It’s OK to Be Different 
  • Just Kidding 
  • Oliver Button is a Sissy 

For additional titles, see Ready, Set, Respect! GLSEN's Elementary Toolkit or GLSEN's No Name-Calling Week Bibliography.
