More Than Books for Back to School

Yesterday marked the first day of school for many kids across the country. And from Sacramento to Savannah, classroom shelves were stocked and backpacks stuffed to the brim with brand new books from First Book.

For over 20 years, we’ve been in the fortunate position to help teachers get the books their students need to start school off strong. And this year we’re taking things a step further.

In response to overwhelming feedback from our network of 130,000 educators and program leaders, we’re offering more tools than ever before to help kids in need read, learn and succeed. In addition to books, eligible schools and programs can now access games, bookmarks, school supplies and interactive learning tools for the kids they serve.

Check out some of the cool new tools we’re offering on the First Book Marketplace – just in time for back to school:
