Are you an educator with at least 70% of the children in your classroom coming from low-income families or have disabilities?


If you answered yes, a leading non-profit wants to help your students to read.


First Book is a nonprofit social enterprise that distributes tens of millions of new books and educational resources every year to schools serving children in need nationwide.


Any educator, paraprofessional, administrator, or program leader working with kids in need is eligible for First Book’s resources. If you work in a school, department, classroom, or afterschool program that serves at least 70% kids from low-income families, First Book has books and educational resources for you.  First Book also supports Title I (or Title I eligible) schools and programs, as well as those serving primarily children with disabilities.


First Book offers brand-new, top-quality books and educational resources for children ages 0-18, for free or at deep discounts of 50-90% off retail prices—an average of just $2.50 per book. First Book’s resources are available exclusively to educators and program leaders serving children in need. First Book has free resources to support family engagement, culturally-relevant instruction, and bilingual learners. 


First Book is a major element in the Indiana Department of Education’s upcoming Hoosier Family of Readers initiative. The formal kick-off of Hoosier Family of Readers is May 7, but we wanted members to know about this great opportunity through the First Book program beforehand.
