  1. I saw a parent in the mall last night and invited her to download the “My first 1 ot 5 activity book” for her son. I told her the book will get him to write down his home address, teach him his first five numbers in Spanish, and allow him to color as he learns. She smiled and told me, “That’s what he needs at home.”

  2. I met a young mother in Jackson, Mississippi in front of Boost Mobile Saturday who said she reads to her two year old child. Awesome! because reading to babies offers multiple benefits to them.


    1. Help us collect 1,000 surveys. We have 300 surveys/questionnaires; we need 700 more. It only takes three minutes to complete a survey online. The data is helping us determine the household library needs of families living in the Jackson Metropolitan area.


  3. I tried the “My 1 to 5 Activity Book” and “My A to G Activity Book” for my 4 and 5 year and they loved it. They both sing the Mississippi Song every day. They even learned our home address.

  4. My four year old twins Shae and Joseph love these Pre-K books. They are learning a lot. I recommend these books to any parent who has a child going to kindergarten this fall. They both know our home address and our parents name now. They learned the Mississippi song. They can’t spell it yet, but they enjoy singing the song..


  5. The board completed all six volumes for the My First Book Series before Christmas. One goal accomplished.
