First Second Books Challenge you to Read Without Walls

Dear Readers, 

We're delighted to be launching Reading Without Walls this April -- a month-long, nation-wide program to promote diversity in reading, inspired by National Ambassador for Young People's Literature Gene Luen Yang and his ambassadorial platform. Thousands of schools, libraries, bookstores, and comics stores are joining in to help celebrate Reading Without Walls. 

This month, Gene is challenging us all to: 

Read a book about a character who doesn't look or live like you.

Read a book in a format you don't typically read -- graphic novels, poetry, audiobooks, plays.

Read a book about a new subject you don't know much about. 

And we'll be sharing our thoughts with the #readingwithoutwalls hashtag on social media. 

You can find more resources to support Reading Without Walls here:


We're so excited for this program! We hope you can join us in Reading Without Walls this April

Star Wars Put me in the story Books

By Shawn "Fangirl S"

I had a chance to review both of these books and found them the perfect gift to get children to both read and enjoy Star Wars.  Youdownload a photo of your child as well as enter their name, both of which appear throughout the book. There are activities throughout the book  to see which side of the force your child will choose. The books also describe several Star Wars characters from the movies (Star Wars: The Force Inside) and from the cartoons (Star Wars Rebels: Battle Plans from Darth Vadar). The books are hardcover and very well made. I believe both you and your child will enjoy these books. 

Put Me In The Story creates personalized versions of bestselling books featuring your favorite characters. Our gifts capture moments that matter and memories that last. With each touching picture and special dedication message, our readers have become our most dynamic characters. Put Me In The Story inspires a love for reading, across all ages and generations, through the experience of shared, personalized stories. For more information, visit
