A donation of more than $38,000 from Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation for Health will fund a program that supports new parents in their role as a child’s first teacher!

Idaho AEYC and the Idaho Commission for Libraries will distribute Books for Babies kits to new mothers through St. Luke's Health System hospitals in Jerome, Ketchum, McCall, Meridian and Nampa beginning this July. The kits will include a board book, baby’s first library card and brochures with reading tips and early literacy information.
