First Book

In 2013, First Book and its partners committed to launching a national effort connecting eligible programs/classrooms serving diverse communities to an ongoing supply of First Book resources that feature diverse protagonists and culturally-relevant content. The First Book Stories for All Project will engage 30,000 new programs and classrooms serving children in need from diverse backgrounds to add to its network of educators. First Book will curate and distribute Special Diversity Collections of new culturally relevant content, and stimulate the creation of new content by authors and illustrators from and for underserved populations. Over 1.3 million books will be distributed and 30,000 educators will be given permanent access to First Book's ongoing supply of highest quality resources.
