The goal of the Books 4 Kids Program is to place character-building books in the hands of children who need them. Based on the news stories on any given day, that's all children. In order to reach the largest percentage of elementary-aged kids, the books are distributed through public schools.
Schools receive the books at no cost to them OR to the students who receive them. They are simply gifts from companies and individuals who care about the next generation and the choices they will make for their lives. Teachers and administrators are free to give the books at the time that fits best for their students, with just one requirement. Every student in the class must receive their book at the same time. We cannot instill the message of inclusion by leaving anyone out, which happens all too often during traditional book fairs.
Paricipating schools can request author readings - again with no cost to the school.
