Celebrating the Read Across America Program with Blue Dog

Celebrating "Read Across America"

Throughout his career, artist George Rodrigue was the subject of many books that explored his artwork. But perhaps the most beloved of the publications featuring Rodrigue's art are his two children's books: "Why Is Blue Dog Blue?" and "Are You Blue Dog's Friend?"

Today, Executive Director Jacques Rodrigue shared these two cherished books with students at Bissonet Plaza Elementary in Metairie, Louisiana, in honor of Read Across America.

About Read Across America
The National Education Association is building a nation of readers through its signature program, NEA's Read Across America. Now in its 20th year, this year-round program focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnership, and reading resources.
