Preschool children, birth to five, registered for the Ferst Readers program receive a free, age-appropriate book at their homes monthly via U.S. mail. Parents, educators, child development specialists and Ferst Readers staff carefully select these books each year for our Read to Me Library™. We are proud that three-quarters of our books are published in Georgia, and that many Georgia authors are included in our book selections. A newsletter accompanies each book, with activity pages for the child, but more importantly, essential information for the parent. As research consistently shows, parent engagement is key to early learning success. Our monthly newsletters are county specific, so it is a wonderful way to promote literacy/reading events locally, as well as recognize our sponsors publicly and on a regular basis.
Ferst Readers fosters early learning success by getting free, age-appropriate books into the hands and homes of children, birth to five years old, in participating communities.
