“Even if a book is just the word ‘Dada’ and some animal noises, the confidence that you gain from reading and finishing your first book opens up a whole new world,” the comedian and TV host said.
Jon Yaged, President & Publisher of Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group, added, “We couldn’t be happier to help facilitate Jimmy’s generosity, and to work with First Book to foster a love of reading in kids at an early age.”
This is awesome! It’s definitely important to get kids on the right track with reading early, so a donation like this will have a great impact. Kudos to Jimmy and Macmillan for working together to make this possible!
