On Monday December 29 we will get a shippment of 5, 607 books, totally free, shipping has been underwritten by the Department of Education. Each of the children we serve ages newborn - 8 will recieve three new books. That's 1,700 pounds of books. Amazing.

A Call-to-Action: Post a Comment to Help Share the Magic of BEDTIME STORIES!
December 19th, 2008 by Diane N.

At First Book, we’re strong believers that every child deserves to know the magic of bedtime stories — and we know you are too.

Few movies celebrate that magic quite like Disney’s upcoming BEDTIME STORIES – an adventure comedy starring Adam Sandler as Skeeter Bronson, a hotel handyman whose life is changed forever when the bedtime stories he tells his niece and nephew start to mysteriously come true.

In celebration of the film’s December 25 release, Disney Publishing Worldwide will donate up to 250,000 brand new books to First Book.

Will you do your part and share YOUR story?

Now through December 25, post a comment on First Book's Blog about a bedtime story or memory and, in your honor, Disney will donate one new book to a child in need – just for commenting!

It’s free, takes just a minute and will help make bedtime brighter for kids in need.

Thanks for your help — and don’t forget to buy a ticket on Fandango to see BEDTIME STORIES, opening in theaters December 25!
