Todd Parr’s children’s books and ToddWorld television show are great for communicating complex emotions with young children—and his books are always on our wishlist. The coronavirus pandemic has brought a spike in interest in Todd’s books, while at the same time so many families we serve can’t afford books of their own. Little, Brown Books for Young Readers and Hachette Book Group want to address that need with a matching program called “Reading with Todd Parr Makes Us Feel Good.” Throughout the month of June, they will match every copy of any Todd Parr book bought via local, independent bookstores—like our longtime supporter Folio Books—with a copy donated to the Children’s Book Project! Order copies of Todd’s books today for the children in your world, and we’ll give the matching donated copies to children who need more books that make them feel seen, accepted, and valued.

“Kids can change the world when they can read. Thank you! Love, Todd”
