This was a great cheap resource for door prize books. The only thing is that
I think it's only for non profits or organizations, the man on the phone
made extra sure that I worked for an agency having to do with literacy or
children. So if you are an independent contractor or not associated with a
non-profit this might be a problem. Just giving you a heads up.

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  <http://www.allaboutbooks.org/> www.allaboutbooks.org.  We have
purchased several hundred books from them and they are great to work with."

Scholastic Literacy Partnerships (
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  <http://www.librifoundation.org/> 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.
