For First Day of School, Julianne Moore Brings Books to Kids at Harlem Daycare Center

We’re huge fans of award-winning actress Julianne Moore at First Book; not only is she supremely talented on stage and screen, she’s also a children’s book author and all -around lovely person.

So we were thrilled that she was able to join us yesterday at Round The Clock Nursery in Harlem to celebrate the first day of school in New York City. Round The Clock Nursery is an amazing early childhood program that serves kids in need and their families 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, and one of the many programs that First Book provides with new books and educational materials.

The kids were thrilled to meet Julianne. She read them her new book, ‘My Mom is a Foreigner, But Not to Me’, and gave each of them a signed copy of their own to keep.

Your gift by May 31 can go twice as far to provide new, high-quality books and other resources educators need to help students unlock their full potential.' There is a red button in the bottom, right corner that says, 'I'll give now'.
