Annual Winter Soirée
Celebrate a year of reading. Details to come.
"Journey, a preschooler, was here with her sister and we enjoyed reading BeeBimBop together in the clinic space. Journey could be heard singing and dancing BeeBimBop on her way out of the clinic that day. Another preschooler wanted The Very Hungry Caterpillar but mom wanted Just Go To Bed, so they left happily with both books to read together at home. Lauren, a fourth grader, took Anne of Green Gables off the book shelf and was reading it independently when I told her that it was a First Book donation and she was welcome take it home... a big smile immediately crossed her face!"
Team First Book NYC provides new books to children in need, addressing one of the most important factors affecting literacy: access to books.
