Ferst Readers has a program for DALLAS residents only. This service mails a child a book on a monthly basis - up until the age of 5. Any child in Dallas County is eligible.
I spoke with the regional director and advised this is a service we would like to offer to our children. As long as the child's address is updated when they leave our homes, they can continue to receive their books. If the address is not update, the foster parent would just cancel the subscription.
Free Books Every Month for Children in Dallas County
Ferst Readers, in partnership with the Boone Family Foundation and United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, announces our Once Upon a Month literacy initiative, providing wonderful books to children, birth to five, and useful literacy resources to their parents, mailed to the home every month!
The program is currently available to children, under the age of five, that live in Dallas County.
To get started, simply fill out the registration form below.
For those families with children under five who live outside of Dallas County, please check back as our program continues to grow throughout Texas. To receive books now, and if you have the resources to do so, our program is available by subscription through our Read Ferst! program (click here).
