Joey McIntyre’s Let’s Get This Foundation Book Drive Generates 25,000 New Books

This summer, Joey McIntyre, a member of New Kids on the Block, teamed up with First Book to provide new books to children in need at every stop of NKOTB’s North American tour.

The Let’s Get This Foundation teamed up with First Book to host a new book drive in each city on the tour. Joey encouraged fans to bring new children’s books to be donated to an organization in the next community on the stop, as well as encouraged them to make a donation to First Book at As a thank you for their donation, fans received a free download of Joey’s latest song, Five Brothers and Million Sisters.

At the tour’s conclusion, more than 25,000 books and nearly $30,000 were donated! Thanks to everyone who participated in the book drive and make so many new books possible for kids in need across the country! Be sure to watch the thank you message from Joey and his adorable son Griffin below.

    Set in today’s day and time, Me and My Best Friend is about a young boy, his faithful companion and their exciting adventures.

    Henry and Liam are the best of friends and they do everything together. They can run and play all day long. But when Henry the puppy gets tired and tries to take a nap, three-year-old Liam keeps waking him, wanting him to play some more. Will Henry get any rest?

    Get your children involved with this beautifully illustrated book. Your child will love to match up words and pictures, and find Liam, who keeps hiding in his bedroom. Perfect for the young reader!
