We all know that reading is the foundation of learning and needs to be highlighted year-round to make a lasting impression. With that in mind, CTA’s California Reads Committee met to finish choosing teacher-recommended books for this year. The committee offers teacher-approved quarterly book recommendations for multiple age groups, including adults.
