About First Book About First Book

The “Healthy Mind, Healthy Body” initiative is a comprehensive effort to support educators serving kids in need with new resources focused on social and emotional development—an area identified by First Book’s membership of educators and program leaders as a top health education priority.

The program includes two curated collections of books for children, one for Grades PreK-K and the other for Grades 1-3, to use in teaching lessons incorporating the social and emotional learning skills necessary for kids to manage their emotions and behavior.
