Read to Me Library

The Ferst Readers program was created to foster the love of reading and help develop early literacy skills by giving every child his/her own home library. Every book in our Read to Me Library is thoughtfully selected through a comprehensive review process by a team of experts - PhDs in the field of early childhood education, children’s literature, and family literacy, and representatives from our Community Action Teams with experience as librarians, media specialists, preschool teachers or any field related to young children’s literature. Our goal is to provide the highest quality preschool literature for the benefit of the children enrolled in the Ferst Readers program. In order to achieve these high standards, specific criteria have been established to guide the selection of books for the Ferst Readers Read to Me Library

Upon enrollment in the program every child will receive Read to Me as their first book. On their fifth birthday, children will receive the ‘graduation’ book Will I Have a Friend? – a delightful story about entering kindergarten.

Reading regularly with your children during their preschool years gives them the biggest boost toward a successful education they will ever receive. Children who start kindergarten with early reading experiences are happier and more successful students all through school. We hope that by receiving the Ferst Readers Read To Me Library collection, your family will spend time sharing the pleasure of reading and learning together!
