In collaboration with Macmillan Children’s Publishing GroupJimmy Fallon is making an incredible donation of $1 million worth of new books to kids in need!

The books will be donated to nonprofit First Book by Macmillan and Jimmy, and will be passed out to kids First Book’s network of more than 275,000 educators and program leaders nationwide. Copies of Jimmy’s own #1 New York Times bestselling title, YOUR BABY’S FIRST WORD WILL BE DADA, will be given as well!

“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!
