First Book in Cincinnati!

First Book is continuing its mission of providing children brand new books.  Recently, First book has partnered with Cincinnati public schools.  First Book has committed to providing books for the 3,000 children who are enrolled in the summer program!  Each child will receive three brand new books.  This program comes as the result of a new partnership with the American Federation of Teachers. 

Partnerships such as these allow First Book to expand its reach and have a greater impact.  Studies have shown that during the summer, some children lose the skills that they have acquired during the school year.  By providing children with books, they are provided with an added incentive to read.  This ultimately impacts their ability to maintain their literacy skills during the summer months.  If you’re interested in partnering with First Book to receive books for your school or program, go to

Happy Reading!
