free books for georgia kids

April 29, 2010

I learned about an amazing childhood literacy program for Georgia residents (Sorry to the rest of you!) via Family, Stamping, and Food's Feed Me Books Friday link last week!

It's called the Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy. For registered children in participating counties, a new book is mailed to the child's home every month from birth to age 5!

There is NO COST to register your child and the books he receives are his to keep! 

Right now there are 70 counties participating. If you live in Georgia, and your child is not already registered, head over to their site to see if your county is on the list!

If your county is not on the list or you don't live in Georgia, there are recommended reading lists for parents to check out. I noticed a lot of our favorites and also a few I had never heard of before. Gave me some inspiration for our next library visit. 

Does your state have a similar program? Leave a comment or a link telling us all about it!

There's free books for kids in communities all over the U.S. from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library!

It looks like that's what your Ferst Foundation program is part of! My community lacks funding for it. At least we have a great library system that keeps us happy with good literature!

How neat! I signed my daughter up for a local program that's $20 for the year, and I thought THAT was a good deal! :)
