As we all know, reading to your child at an early age means a good head start in school. Books are also a beautiful way for kids to learn about and escape to other worlds and lands, real or imaginary. Aerin Lauder, the founder of AERIN, a luxury lifestyle brand, has teamed up with FIRST BOOK, a non-profit that partners with publishers and schools in low income communities to help distribute new books to children in the United States and Canada.
AERIN, in partnership with FIRST BOOK, recently launched two book bundles, one for ages 0-3 and another for ages 4-8 where 100% of all proceeds are donated directly to FIRST BOOK. Each book bundle includes age-appropriate titles (that are some of my kid’s favorites) and would make a wonderful addition to your kid’s summer reading list and book shelf. It also makes a perfect birthday gift for your kids and your kid’s friends. Books are the perfect present because they just keep on giving!
FIRST BOOK Children’s Bundle: Ages 0-3: Jan Gerardi’s The Little Gardener; Dorothy Kunhardt’s Pat the Bunny, Richard Scarry’s Cars and Trucks and Things That Go; P.D. Eastman’s Are You My Mother? and Go, Dog. Go!
FIRST BOOK Children’s Bundle: Ages 4-8: Joan Yolleck’s Paris in the Spring with Picasso is the perfect introduction to art, literature, and the City of Light; Duck & Goose by Tad Hills, Richard Scarry’s Busy, Busy Town, and Leo Lionni’s Frederick and His Friends and A Color of His Own.
How can you help? Give the gift of reading by simply clicking on the links and purchasing the book bundles or, if you are out in Eastern Long Island, head on out to AERIN Southampton to purchase in person. 100% of the proceeds go directly to FIRST BOOK.
