Hi!  I'm updating the Reading for Healthy Families website this month and next.   Below are the places to get good deals on books we already have listed on the website, please email me if you know of any other sources for inexpensive children's books so I can add them to the website.

Thank you,

Good Deals on Books:

All About Books
"Great popular board books average cost is $2.00-3.00.  Most books are discounted at least 50% from the regular retail price.  For every 12 books purchased you get 12 free books.  There is also free shipping.  Their website is www.allaboutbooks.org<http://www.allaboutbooks.org/>.  We have purchased several hundred books from them and they are great to work with."  --RFHF participant
Scholastic Literacy Partnerships<http://teacher.scholastic.com/products/literacypartners/index.asp> (http://teacher.scholastic.com/products/literacypartnerships/) supports literacy efforts nationwide by provide deep discounts on a wide range of children's paperback and board books, as well as free bonus books for large orders.  Any non-profit (501c3), state agency, community organization or corporation that distributes books to children and/or their families free of charge is eligible to become a Scholastic Literacy Partner.  Scholastic's goal is to get more books in the hands and homes of children because research shows a link between the number of books in a child's home and later success in school.

The Libri Foundation<http://www.librifoundation.org/> (http://www.librifoundation.org/) provides matching grants to small, rural public libraries in the United States. The Foundation will match on a 2 to 1 ration an amount of money raised locally from $50 to $350.  If your library raised $350, you would receive $1,050 worth of new children's books!  Healthy Start family support workers may wish to partner with libraries eligible for this grant to develop a program to get books into children's hands.
