How it Works
Every month until their 5th birthday, the child receives an age-appropriate book in the mail addressed to them. Books are 100% free!
Children grow up in a home full of books. Books help baby learn shapes, colors, letters and numbers. Older kids get rhyming books, complex stories, and stories about diversity. Imagination Library books are selected to help children be ready for kindergarten. It’s that simple!
