The Story of First Book

First Book is a nonprofit organization that provides books to children in need. According to First Book's website,

I included The Story of First Book in this week's booktalk presentations for grades four and five. I hope during the next Student Council meeting (I'm the co-advisor) a member raises his hand and says, "I think we should organize a fundraiser for First Book." I would clap and clap and clap and clap and clap. ;)

Thank you, First Book, for providing access to new books for children in need.

The majority of low-income families do not have a single book for their children.

  1. Thanks, Mr. Schu! We would love that too!

    Although, we'd love it even more if all your loyal readers made sure that any school or program serving kids from low-income families knows to SIGN UP with First Book.

    We can get them books. That's a promise. We have plenty. We just need to know who they are, where they are, and what books they need!
