If you grew up with books of your own at home, you know what a powerful impact they had on your life. But kids from low-income families typically have no books of their own at home, and few, if any, in their classrooms. You can imagine the impact THAT has.
But today, and for the rest of this week, you can do something about it.
Our friends at Random House Children’s Books have generously agreed to donate one brand-new book for each new follower we gain on Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter this week. Those books will go to thousands of schools and programs serving kids from low-income families across the country.
Help us spread the word! Tell your friends on Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter to follow First Book and you’ll help get books to kids who need them.
