Season’s Readings November 24 - January 4

Welcome to our first annual Season’s Readings campaign! With the arrival of holiday time, we’re offering a special reading challenge: each week a different sponsor is helping us double your impact during this season of giving.

We’re challenging you to help us read 5,000 books – and give 10,000 books to children in need – each week this season! For every book you read online during the six weeks of Season’s Readings, we’ll put two books into the hands of children in need. The holidays are a wonderful time to teach your children about giving back, and giving is as easy as reading together on We Give Books. Learn more about the impact you are making just by reading with us.

We’ve put together a weekly list of our favorite books for the season, tied to the spirit, traditions, and magic of the holidays. Come back each week to see our latest holiday picks, and find your favorites in our full online library. Any book you read online at We Give Books, not just our Season’s Reading suggestions, will give two books to children in need. Start reading with the young people in your life, and give the gift of literacy this season!

Don’t forget to share Season’s Readings! Show us how you celebrate literacy this season on our Reading Celebrations page for the chance to win copies of our favorite books. See below for more information.

This Week's Season’s Readings Book List


First Book and We Give Books would like to extend our gratitude to the following First Book partners who share our belief that every child should have access to new books. Each of our partners magnifies our mission to ensure we are able to reach as many kids in need as possible.


How do you celebrate reading during the holidays?

Show us how you celebrate reading this season! Upload a picture of you or someone you love enjoying a book, or share a book-themed holiday display – or anything else that shows your love of books this festive season – and you could win a Season’s Readings prize pack. Each week, we’ll choose the photo of one lucky reader who will receive five free books!
