Rediscover the joy in reading with your child/grandchild
We don't need to tell you that reading to your children is important. Study after study has shown it impacts a child’s development. Even the mere presence of books in a home increases the level of education they can reach. (Great news for those of us who haven’t gotten around to cleaning out the playroom in a while.)
But finding the right books and making the time to read as a family can be hard. That’s where PJ Library comes in.
Impact of PJ Library
PJ Library sends free Jewish children's books to families across the world every month. We know that something magical happens when parents sit down together to read with their children. PJ Library shares Jewish stories that can help your family talk together about values and traditions that are important to you.
A program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, PJ Library is made possible through partnerships with philanthropists and local Jewish organizations. Families with kids ages 6 months through 8 years old with Judaism as part of their lives, are welcome to sign up, regardless of their Jewish background, knowledge, or observance.
Through our partners around North America, we also offer activities for your family — because you’ve got to get out of the house and meet new people sometimes.
Your children are learning about the world around them through the stories they hear. PJ Library books can bring Jewish ideas and inspiration for you and your children to share together.
As part of the PJ Library program, on some months, instead of a book, your family will receive CD's that will take you and your child/grandchild on a musical journey through Jewish holidays, traditions, and songs
