First Book is a non-profit social enterprise committed to elevating educational opportunities for children in need. We believe that educators should have access to all the resources they need to help these children succeed, including books, school supplies and other essentials. When you buy from the First Book Marketplace, your purchase helps others who are also making a difference in the lives of children.
LEARN FOR LIFE: KEY SKILLS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY
Each hand-picked book in the Learn for Life section is paired with a FREE downloadable tip sheet, designed to help you equip the kids you serve with the key 21st century skills they need to thrive in school and in life.
These book-and-resource pairs were developed as a joint project with the Partnership for 21st Century Learning, and each explores one of the following Learning and Innovation Skills:
Creativity: Trying new ways to get things done
Collaboration: Working together to reach a goal and putting talent and smarts to work
Critical Thinking: Looking at problems in a new way, making reasonable decisions and linking learning across subjects
Communication: Sharing thoughts, questions, ideas and solutions
These resources are made possible with generous support from Disney.
