Book Club

The new, improved and expanded Children’s Trust Book Club offers free, monthly books by mail for children from birth through their 5th birthday living in Miami-Dade County. Parents may register children from birth until they're 4-and-a-half years old. Book Club members receive a new book every month in English or Spanish along with a guide for parents with activities, information and suggestions on how to share the book with their children. Books include classics, award-winners and picture books to engage even our youngest “readers.” All books are selected specifically to help children develop their early reading skills for school readiness and, of course, for maximum enjoyment with their families!

When you receive your books, share on your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram! Tag The Children's Trust and use #TCTBookClub!

The Book Club is funded and administered by The Children's Trust and Miami-Dade Family Learning Partnership.
