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?"
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.
