You may have seen First Book president, CEO, and co-founder Kyle Zimmer describing how to post a “shelfie” to hosts Whoopi, Joy, Sunny, and Meghan on The View.
What’s a shelfie? It’s a selfie photo with a favorite book or in front of a bookshelf posted on social media with the hashtag #MagicofStorytelling that unlocks a book donation from Disney to the kids we serve. It’s an easy way to help a child in need right now. Click here for a guide on how to post your own shelfie!
Ever since Kyle’s TV appearance, the shelfies have been pouring in! We picked out some of our favorite pictures from folks you may have seen on the big screen, as well as fellow book-lovers who want to help kids in need, just like you.
Don’t wait to join in the fun! We hope to reach 1 million shelfies posted & books donated by March 31, 2018.
Visit First Book’s Magic of Storytelling page to find out more about shelfies, the campaign, and First Book’s partnership with Disney.
Remember, each shelfie posted to Twitter or Instagram with #MagicOfStorytelling means one brand-new book goes to a child in need… and check back to see if we highlighted your shelfie here on First Book’s blog as we feature our favorite shelfies throughout the campaign!

Chicken Little asked us to post this Shelfie (a selfie with your favorite book) on Twitter using the hashtag #MagicOfStorytelling so @disney will donate a book to kids in need with @firstbookorg. You should do it, too (or the sky will probably fall). pic.twitter.com/Lx3J31Fy1O

By taking a #shelfie (a photo with a book), @disney will donate one book for every tweet and Instagram post with the #MagicOfStorytelling hashtag, up to one million books! 📚 I loved the Berenstain Bears growing up and have loved introducing these books to our girls. pic.twitter.com/y80XMwDngR

Books with boss heroines and a bunny, that’s what we’re into.
