Giving Tree First Library


Last year, we proudly launched our Giving Tree First Library program. Our goal was to sponsor 15 kids ages 0-3 who would receive a book a month all year. We were overwhelmed with the response to this program and were able to sponsor 30 kids in 2018.

We'd like to extend a special thanks to the amazing coordinators at WIC Cape Cod, Cape Cod Child Development, and Coalition for Children, along with Lisa and Linda, two fantastic volunteers and children's book experts, who helped select books for each month.

To learn more about the program launch, read this article that appeared in the Falmouth Enterprise last January.

We are excited to continue the Giving Tree First Library program in 2019.







One Child


12 Books


In partnership with the Falmouth Coalition for Children, Cape Cod Child Development,  Cape Cod WIC, and you, we can sponsor libraries for local children ages 0-3 for one year. 


Eight Cousins will select and deliver one book each month January - December 2019.


Birth - Three

Early Development

Reading to children ages 0-3 benefits language skills, brain development, socialization, numeracy, critical thinking, behavior, empathy. 


"What happens during the first few years sets the stage for the rest of a child's life."

"Reading aloud with young children can enhance parent-child relationships and prepare young minds to learn language and early literacy skills."

Give a gift that will grow for life.
