Beginning September 15th, Penguin Young Readers Group (a division of Penguin Random House) is uniting with the second largest U.S. bookstore chain, Books-A-Million, to form a national charity campaign to benefit underprivileged community youth.
With each purchase of a book from the Ordinary People Change the World series, both organizations will donate a copy to First Book, a non-profit enterprise that provides new books and educational resources to children of low-income families.
Authored by Brad Meltzer, the Ordinary People Change the World series delivers American history to young readers in an entertaining, conversational way. Through biographical picture books, American legends such as Helen Keller, Jackie Robinson, and Amelia Earhart provide children with role models that will inspire them to strive and dream.
Books from this series can be purchased from Books-A-Million, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and other participating book retailers found on Ordinarypeoplechangetheworld.com.
The campaign will end the 30th of October, 2015.
