Summer is over. The time has come to sharpen pencils, load up backpacks and find your new home room!
And, as students around the country return to school, the one thing that their teachers all need is books. There’s no greater predictor of success in school – and in life – than reading skill, and books are the key. But for kids in many low-income neighborhoods, books are scarce.
First Book is here to help. We’re a nonprofit that provides brand-new, high-quality books and educational resources – at free or at low cost – to schools and programs serving kids from low-income families.
Work with kids in need and need books? Know someone who does? Sign up with First Book.
We distribute books through a few different channels, depending on the needs of the teachers and program leaders in our network. But, because we’re a nonprofit and we work with every major publisher, book-buying dollars go a LOT further with First Book. Visit the First Book Marketplace and see for yourself.
Good luck, and have a great school year!
