First Book

Learning to read is critical to a child’s success – both in school and in life. Literacy is one of the best predictors of a child’s future success. But a child without access to books won’t have the chance to become an engaged and capable reader. This is the reality for children who are growing up in poverty; books are scarce. First Book is determined to ensure that children in need do not miss out.

First Book is a nonprofit social enterprise that has distributed more than 135 million books and educational resources to programs and schools serving children from low-income families throughout the United States and Canada. By making new, high-quality books and educational resources available on an ongoing basis, First Book is transforming the lives of children in need and elevating the quality of education. 

Mission: 
Together we can end illiteracy and give all children the chance to become successful readers for life. It all starts with their first book.
