First Book: Access to New Books for Children in Need

Does your mom (like mine) insist that she doesn't need any gifts for Mother's Day? If you still want to give her a gift without getting yelled at, you might want to consider donating to this really lovely organization. They provide books to schools and community programs so low-income kids can learn to love the same bedtime stories the rest of us do.

Forty-two percent of children in the United States — more than 30 million — live in low-income households. Most of these children have no age-appropriate books at home, and the classrooms and programs they attend are woefully under-resourced. Approximately two-thirds of these schools and programs cannot afford to buy books at retail prices.
