FIRST BOOK CANADA

Why does Get Lit support First Book Canada?

Because the majority of low-income families in this country
do not have a single book to share with their children.

Not one.

First Book Canada is working hard to change that. It puts new books
into the hands of children who need them most by providing them free to schools
and community-based programs serving families in need.

And the need is great: literacy is critical in determining whether a child will finish school, the work they do and even their health. In some of Canada’s most underfunded communities, there is only one book for every 100 children.

Since 2009, First Book Canada has distributed over 4,500,000 new books across the country. Get Lit looks forward to seeing that number grow.
