Early Learning Success Begins with Books at Home

Changing Children's Lives With the Gift of Literacy

Imagine a young child receiving a book in the mail every month until the age of five. What better way to say reading is important? Children enrolled in the Ferst Program receive a new book every month in the mail until their 5th birthday. There is absolutely no cost (ever) to registered children in participating areas! The program is made possible through the partnership with local, all-volunteer Community Action Teams (CATs). Funding is provided through private donations, corporate sponsorships and grants. Contact us to help with a local Program or get a new one started in your area so that we may work together to bring the gift of literacy to every child 0-5 years old. Partnering together, we can help prepare every child for success in school and in life.
